## STORY SYNOPSIS

## “Pythagorean Equation”

### In mathematics, the **Pythagorean theorem**, also known as **Pythagoras’s theorem**, is a fundamental relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle.

### It states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

### The theorem can be written as an equation relating the lengths of the sides *a*, *b* and *c*, often called the “Pythagorean equation”:^{[1]}

### a2 + b2 = c2 ( a squared, b squared and c squared )

### Where *c* represents the length of the hypotenuse and *a* and *b* the lengths of the triangle’s other two sides.
