On Pythagoras's Theorem (TANTON Mathematics)

Pythagoras's Theorem states that if one draws squares on the sides of a right triangle, the largest square has area the sum of the two smaller square areas. This means it must be possible to split the large square into two rectangles, each having area matching the area of a smaller square. In this video I show you how to do this swiftly and easily. It's a charming little tidbit. (And then ... Who says you have to stick with squares???)
