# What is converse Pythagorean Theorem?

## What is converse Pythagorean Theorem?

The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem states that if the square of the third side of a triangle is equivalent to the sum of its two shorter sides, then it must be a right triangle. In other words, the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem is the same Pythagorean Theorem but flipped.

How can we prove Pythagoras theorem by Bhaskara method?

A = c^2 = a^2 + b^2, concluding the proof. In this proof, Bhaskara began with a right triangle and then he drew an altitude on the hypotenuse. From here, he used the properties of similarity to prove the theorem.

How did Euclid prove the Pythagorean Theorem?

In order to prove the Pythagorean theorem, Euclid used conclusions from his earlier proofs. Euclid proved that “if two triangles have the two sides and included angle of one respectively equal to two sides and included angle of the other, then the triangles are congruent in all respect” (Dunham 39).

### What if a2 b2 is greater than c2?

Converse: If a2+b2=c2 in a triangle with c is the longest side, then a triangle is a right triangle. If a triangle is not a right triangle, there are 2 other options for types of triangles. Acute: Has 3 acute (less than 90 degree) angles. Obtuse: Has a single obtuse (greater than 90 degree) angle and 2 acute angles.

Who first proved the Pythagorean theorem?

Pythagoras
The theorem is mentioned in the Baudhayana Sulba-sutra of India, which was written between 800 and 400 bce. Nevertheless, the theorem came to be credited to Pythagoras.

What is A and B in Pythagorean theorem?

The Pythagorean theorem consists of a formula a^2+b^2=c^2 which is used to figure out the value of (mostly) the hypotenuse in a right triangle. The a and b are the 2 “non-hypotenuse” sides of the triangle (Opposite and Adjacent).

#### What is Euclid rule?

1. A straight line segment can be drawn joining any two points. 2. If two lines are drawn which intersect a third in such a way that the sum of the inner angles on one side is less than two right angles, then the two lines inevitably must intersect each other on that side if extended far enough.

Is 6 8 and 10 is a Pythagorean triplet?

So, $\left( 6,8,10 \right)$ is a Pythagorean triplet. Therefore, option (b) and option (c) are Pythagorean triplet.
