Exploring Square Roots and the Pythagorean
Theorem By C Berg
Edited By V T Hamilton
2
Perfect Square
• A number that is a square of an integer
• Ex 32 3 3 9

3
3
Creates a Perfect Square of 9
3
Perfect Square
• List the perfect squares for the numbers 1-12

4
Square Root
• The inverse of the square of a number

5
Square Root
• Indicated by the symbol

6
Square Root
• Example

5
25
7
Square Root
• Estimating square roots of non-perfect squares

8
Square Root
• Find the perfect squares immediately greater and
less than the non-perfect square

9
Square Root
Example
The answer is between 82 which is 64 and 92
which is 81
65
10
• Pythagorean Theorem

11
Pythagorean Theorem
• Formula to find a missing side of a right triangle

12
Pythagorean Theorem
• ONLY WORKS FOR RIGHT TRIANGLES!!!

13
Pythagorean Theorem
• Part of a Right Triangle
• Hypotenuse
• 2 Legs

14
Pythagorean Theorem
c hypotenuse
a leg
b leg
15
Pythagorean Theorem
c hypotenuse
a leg
The corner of the square always points to the
hypotenuse
b leg
16
Pythagorean Theorem
• Lengths of the legs a b
• Length of the hypotenuse c

17
Pythagorean Theorem
• The sum of the squares of the legs is equal to
the square of the hypotenuse

18
Pythagorean Theorem
• a2 b2 c2
