Storyboard Text

  • Shane are you ok? you look a little down.
  • Actually no i haven't. i'm having a hard time understanding Pythagorean theorem and i have a big test tomorrow.
  • Pssshh i can totally help you to understand! Show me and example!
  • Here we have a right triangle with a missing side. the long side without a number is the hypotenuse. to solve and find that missing side you will use the formula a^2+b^2=c^2.

  • 13
  • what is the a and b things your talking about?
  • x
  • a and b would the sides that have a value or number next to them. so in this situation the equation would be 5^2+13^2=c^2
  • then what do you do next?
  • you then square both and come out with 25+169=c^2. you then add the two together and get 194. and now to get rid of the exponent on the c you take the square root of 194 and your answer will be 13.93=c.
