Expert Answer:

Please ask a specific question.

In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle).

The theorem can be written as an equation:

where c represents the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b represent the lengths of the other two sides.
