Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremYou have 3 sides of a right angled triangle. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #3 20050704 14:26:36
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremA right angled triangle is one in which one of the angles is 90 degrees. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20050705 02:19:06
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremHere's something weird that I found out whilst doing some coursework: if one of the sides is one unit less than the hypotenuse, the other side has a length equal to the square root of the other two sides' sum. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20050705 08:47:54
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremWell, ganesh's example (5,12,13) should qualify: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20050705 08:49:54
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremZach and ganesh are right, of course, the Pythagoras Theorem is just: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20050706 15:23:50
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremThe three values of the sides of a right angled triangle are also called a Pythagorean Triple. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #8 20050706 17:51:32
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremYes, because they are on the growing sides of a square: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20050707 00:49:41

Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremMy favourite book is called 'The seer and the Sword' by Victoria Hanley. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #14 20050707 08:23:27
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremI like "False memorys" by Dean R. Kuntz #15 20050707 20:31:56
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremWow. I Love "Mort" too. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #17 20050708 00:54:30
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremZach, you aren't banned!!!!! School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #18 20050708 01:11:19
Re: What is da Pythagoros theoremI concur. Very good for confusing people though. Well done! Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
