  1. 1. Pythagorean Theorem and Distance Formula By : Anthony Williams
  2. 2. -What is the Pythagorean Theorem? What do the variables stand for? What type of triangle do we use the theorem for?
    • a^2 + b^2 = c^2
    • 3. C is always the base of the triangle and a and b are always on the side of the triangle.
    • 4. We use a right triangle.
  3. 5.
    • X^2 + 12^2 = 20^2
    • 6. X^2 + 144= 400
    • 7. 400-144=256
    • 8. Square root 256
    • 9. 16
    20 x 15 Triangle with Labeled Sides.
  4. 10. Distance Formula
    • What is distance formula?
    • 11. Distance formula is when you use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse.
    • 12. What steps do you follow to use the distance formula?
    • 13. You use
  5. 14.
    • (2, 1) (1, 5)
    • 15. (5-1)^2+(1- -2)^2
    • 16. (4^2)+(3^2)
    • 17. 16+9=25
    • 18. 25=5
