Raelynn's Pythagoras Scribe Post

6cm to 8 cm

a² + b² = c²
6² + 8² = c²
(6x6) + (8x8) = c²
36 + 64 = c² a
100² cm = c²
√100² = √cm²
10 = c ?

Question: How is 10 larger?
a) 36 + 64 = 100 (opinion.)

15cm to 8cm

a² + b² = c²
15² + 8² = c²
(15x15) + (8x8) = c²
225 + 64 = c² a
289² cm = c²
√289² = √cm²
17cm = c²

b) What is the area of each square?
c) Write an additional statement using the areas of the 3 squares.


  1. Nice post. Please title it Raelynn's Pythagoras Scribe Post and your labels should just be Name, scribepost and pythagoras.

    Good job

  2. Great job Raelynn! You talked about everything we did in math class today, great diagrams. Thanks for putting the effort to write down the show you know questions on your post, that could be helpful for students who have a hard time accsessing the textbook website. The video you posted wasn't exactly what we talked about in class, but it was still helpful and ineresting. Again, great post!

  3. Great post, Raelynn! How you explained everything about what we did in class was great, and I liked how you changed the font colors for the formulas and the important words. The video was quite helpful in my opinion, and the pictures were well drawn, too. Oh, and thanks for posting up the homework, since I didn't get the other part down for both of them. Once again, great job!

  4. I really like your post because it has a very descriptive photos, but here is a link for you to comprehend triangles more. Math Video

  7. Good job Raelyn! Nice post. Nice colors, nice formula. The video is helpful too.

  8. Great job on the post Raelynn, I liked that you have pictures to explain things more better. I would also recommend that you put a link for the post and some of your words didn't really make sense. Here is one post i found about
    Pythagorean Theorem

  9. Great post Raelynn. I like the pictures you drew and I liked how you used a lot of colors on your post. Next time put a link to make it better. Other than that, great job.

  10. Just to let you know the link is where it says "Formula" and "Show you know". You may not notice it very well. Thank you.

  11. Awesome job Raelynn! Your scribe was quite helpful and so is your video. Also your picture are really well drawn. Overall your scribe is great. Keep up the good work!
