#### Storyboard Text

• Today I will be teaching you about Pythagorean Theorem
• The main idea of the Pythagorean Theorem is that when you square your two legs together that it'll be equal to your hypotenuse squared.
• Legs﻿
• ﻿A
• ﻿B
• ﻿C
• ﻿Hypotenuse (longest side)
• ﻿
• The formula for finding the Pythagorean Theorem is "a squared" plus "b squared"= "c squared". A, B & C are NOT angles, they are the lengths of the side of an triangle.
• ﻿6 cm
• ﻿"a squared﻿" +"b squared"="c squared" "6 squared" + "8 squared"="c squared"
• ﻿8 cm
• ﻿C
• ﻿﻿If you are trying to find C "hypotenuse" (longest side) the first thing you need to do is plug in A & B into the formula.
• ﻿Second, multiply A & B by itself but leave C alone, then add A & B together.
• ﻿"6 squared"+"8 squared"="c squared"﻿ 36 + 64 ="c squared" 100 ﻿﻿= "c squared"
• ﻿After, square root "c squared" & the total of A & B﻿. Then you should get C "hypotenuse" by itself.
• ﻿6 cm
• ﻿8 cm
• ﻿C = 10
• ﻿100 = "c squared" √100 = √"c squared" 10 = C
