Week 6

One of the most famous formulas in mathematics is the Pythagorean Theorem. It is based on a right triangle, and states the relationship among the lengths of the sides as a2+ b2= c2, where a and b refer to the legs of a right triangle and c refers to the hypotenuse. It has immeasurable uses in engineering, architecture, science, geometry, trigonometry, algebra, and in everyday applications. For your first post, search online for an article or video that describes how the Pythagorean Theorem can be used in the real world. Provide a one paragraph summary of the article or video in your own words. Be sure you cite the article and provide the link.
