#### Storyboard Text

• What does the problem look like?﻿
• Hey Dad I need help on my homework.﻿
• This can easily be solved with Pythagorean Theorem﻿
• It looks like this.﻿
• I'll show you just follow me.﻿
• 8
• 6﻿
• Ok﻿
• ﻿First you need to know that the white sides are legs labeled with A and B. The order doesn't matter on these. The red is the hypotenuse labeled with C.
• If you only have one leg and the hypotenuse then you subtract the leg from the hypotenuse and find the square root of what's left
• After knowing about the legs and hypotenuse it's as easy as plugging the numbers into the formula. a2 + b2 = c2
• So it would be 8^2 + 6^2 = C^2?
• 8﻿
• 6﻿
• Perfect! Now just multiply and solve.﻿
• Ok so lets see    8*8=64    6*6=36 36+64=100
• Thanks Dad now I understand!﻿
• What do I do with 100?﻿
• Well since 100 is C^2 you just have to find the square root of 100 so the hypotenuse is 10. 8^2+6^2=10^2
