Over 2000 years ago there was an amazing discovery about triangles:

*When a triangle has a right angle (90°) and squares are made on each of the three sides then the biggest square has the exact same area as the other two squares put together.*

It is called "Pythagoras' Theorem" and can be written in one short equation: a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}

**REMEMBER THESE 3 STEPS:**

Step 1: Identify the legs and the hypotenus of the right triangle.

Step 2: Substitute values into the formula. (remember 'c' is the hypotenuse)

Step 3: Solve for the unknown
