### The Pythagoran Theorem

So, I went to a British tutoring site and found out about the Pythagoran Theorem problems.

Here is the Pythagoran Theorem itself:

And following that rule, you would do a problem like this:

1. Take 2 numbers, 1 being larger than the other. For example, 12 and 13.
2. Square them.

3. Subtract one from the other. 169-144=25
4. Find the square root of it. [math25=5[/math]

Therefore, the final formula would be:

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

hi,

He just used the wrong thing for square root in Latex.  I've fixed it.
