Question --------------------------------------------------------------------- Using the Pythagorean Theorem, if a is three and b is four, what is c? A. 14B. 25C. 7D. 3.5E. 5 The Correct Answer --------------------------------------------------------------------- If you answered E. 5, then you're correct. If you didn't, you can try to go back now and solve for the correct answer. Otherwise, read on for a detailed explanation of how to arrive at the right answer. First, you must remember the pythagorean theorem is a squared plus b squared is equal to c squared. Now you can plug in the numbers you've been given. That leaves you with ?three squared plus four squared equals c squared. Three squared is nine, and four squared is 16. Add those together to get 25. You're not done because 25 is equal to c squared. Take the square root of both sides to find that c equals five. Read more by visiting our page at: http://www.mahalo.com/the-pythagorean-theorem-quiz/
