Math - Pythagorean Theorem

In this lecture we were introduced to the Pythagorean Theorem, which allows us to find the missing side of a triangle when we know the other two.

We specifically looked at the 3-4-5 right scalene triangle and the 1-1-root(2) right isosceles triangle and proved the a^2 + b^2 = c^2 geometrically.

When was the last time you used this formula to solve a problem in your game?

I do not recall having seen the entire geometrical proof for the Pythagorean Theorem earlier. It was really great to see and understand that one!

Thank you so much for the explaination of the Pythagorean Theorem, I’ve never been taught this way.
In general the way that you’re making the relation between the drawing (geometry) and the formulas you’re using is a superb idea. Now I don’t memorize formula but I understand it rather
