**What is a**

*Pythagorean Thereom*

A pythogorean thereom is three unknown numbers: a , b and c. They obey the following relationship a2 + b2 = c2. A & B are both legs and C is the hypotenuse.

*Perfect Square Chart***Using embeddable web 2.0, describe how to find the missing side of a Right Triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem, show how to solve both for a missing leg and the hypotenuse (note: you may use numerical examples ie. a=4 b=6 c=?)**

*Part 2*

*Explain how to solve a Pythagoras word problem. Use one of the examples we covered in class (Worksheet A, B, LeFrog or Bonus Problem).*

**Part 3:**

Lefrog stands 1.5 meters from a wall where a fly is 2 meters up.

Lefrog's tongue comes out of his mouth 70 cm from the ground

how far does his tongue have to stretch to eat the fly?

LeFrogs tongue stretched 1.98 m to eat the fly.

A²= 1.3²

B²= 1.5²

C²= ???

A² + B² = C²

1.3² + 1.5² = C²

1.69 + 2.25 = C²

C² = 3.94

/c²=/3.94

/3.94=1.98

*Part 4:*Now that you have seen many Pythagorean problems, create your own word problem.
