Laws

From which law follows directly the validity of Pythagoras' theorem in the right triangle?


« Correct result



Wrong answer


Solution:

c2=a2+b22abcosγ  γ=90cos90=0 c2=a2+b22abcos90 c2=a2+b2c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2ab \cos \gamma \ \\ \ \\ \gamma = 90^\circ \Rightarrow \cos 90^\circ =0 \ \\ c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2ab \cos 90^\circ \ \\ c^2 = a^2 + b^2



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
