 Triangle
A central theorem is the Pythagorean theorem stating that in any right triangle, the area of the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares on the other two sides.
A perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it, i.e.
The area S of a triangle is S = ½bh, where b is the length of any side of the triangle (the base) and h (the altitude) is the perpendicular distance between the base and the vertex not on the base.

In geometry, a simplex or n-simplex is an n-dimensional analogue of a triangle.
The Pythagorean theorem can be generalized to the law of cosines: In trigonometry, the law of cosines is a statement about arbitrary triangles which generalizes the Pythagorean theorem by correcting it with a term proportional to the cosine of the opposing angle.
The area S of a triangle is S = Â½bh, where b is the length of any side of the triangle (the base) and h (the altitude) is the perpendicular distance between the base and the vertex not on the base.

That is, if the longest side of a triangle is twice that of the longest side of a similar triangle, say, then the shortest side will also be twice that of the shortest side of the other triangle, and the median side will be twice that of the other triangle.
The crucial fact is that two triangles are similar if and only if their corresponding angles are equal, and this occurs for example when two triangles share an angle and the sides opposite to that angle are parallel.
This is also the triangle's center of gravity: if the triangle were made out of wood, say, you could balance it on its centroid, or on any line through the centroid.

Chapter 5: We find that at least one of the arms of a Pythagorean triangle is a multiple of 3, while at least one of the three sides (arms or hypotenuse) must be a multiple of 5.
We are also given the exact number of primitive Pythagorean triangles with a given integer as the radius of the inscribed circle.
It is dedicated to proving Fermat's assertion that the smallest Pythagorean triangle in which the hypotenuse and the sum of the arms are squares is the triangle (456548602761, 1061652293520, 4687298610289).

Students need to see how the angles and sides of a right triangle relate to each other in order to understand the trigonometric ratios; these ratios must be mastered because they are the basis of this course and are necessary for further study in mathematics.
In addition, students must understand the Pythagorean theorem because it is a fundamental theorem that instructs students how to relate the sides of a right triangle so that they are able to solve mathematical problems.
Next, define what the Pythagorean theorem states; that is, the sum of the squares of the legs of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse (c2 = a2 + b2).

In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem or Pythagoras' theorem, is a relation in Euclidean geometry between the three sides of a right triangle.
The theorem is named after and commonly attributed to the 6th century BC Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, although the facts of the theorem were known by Indian (Baudhayana's and Katyayana's Sulbasutras), Greek, Chinese and Babylonian mathematicians well before he lived.

 Pythagorean Triples
This is a Pythagorean triple since, as a triangle, is it just 3 times the 3-4-5 triangle (by which we mean that we just triple the lengths of each side of a 3-4-5 triangle, which we already know is right-angled).
The length of the rope is the perimeter of the triangle.
However, in any triangle the two shorter sides must add to more than the longest side or else the sides will not meet (think of the longest side as the base and the two shorter sides hinged at the ends of the base).

The three numbers 3, 4, and 5 form what is called a Pythagorean set or Pythagorean triple since these three integers can represent (exactly) the sides of a right angled triangle for which Pythagoras' Theorem holds.
This theorem states that for any right angled triangle the square of the hypotenuse (longest side) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
