### Using Pythagoras' Theorem

Basic Pythagoras' Theorem Excercises

Using Pythagoras' Theorem, can you work out the answers to given problems? These should be quite easy if you know Pythagoras' Theorem. Have fun!

1. What is Pythagoras' Theorem? Do not give the formula, explain what it is.
2. The length of the opposite and adjacent sides are 3cm and 4cm. What is the length of the hypotenuse?
3. If I knew what the hypotenuse and what the adjacent OR the opposite side was, what would be the formula for working out the missing side?
4. The length of the adjacent side and the opposite side is 9cm and 11cm. What is the length of the hypotenuse?
5. The length of the opposite and adjacent sides are 19cm and 17cm. What is the length of the hypotenuse?
6. The length of the hypotenuse is 36cm. The length of the opposite side is approximately 7.81cm. What is the length of the adjacent side?
