Pythagoras theorem also known as ** Pythagorean theorem** gives
the relationship between the sides in a right angle triangle. It states that

*“In a right triangle the area of the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares of its remaining two sides”.*

In algebraic terms Pythagoras theorem can be written as:

*a**² + b**² =
c**²*

Where, ** c** is the length of the

*hypotenuse*of the triangle and

**&**

*a***represents the length of the other two sides of the triangle.**

*b*Pythagoras theorem is named after the ancient Greek mathematician ** Pythagoras
(c. 570–495 BC).** Pythagoras theorem is said to be of very importance in
Euclidean geometry.
