Pythagoras Theorem

The Pythagoras’ Theorem which is one of the most renowned theorems worldwide was known to our ancestors ranging from the olden societies. The theorem was coined by a Greek arithmetician and thinker named Pythagoras. Pythagoras established a school which was purely for mathematical research in southern part of Italy in ancient Greece. Various works related to math have been credited in the name of Pythagoras which actually belonged to his apprentices.
Of all the works which Pythagoras had created, the Theorem of Pythagoras stood apart from his other works .
The Pythagoras theorem being a part of Maths Syllabus, states about triangles comprising of a right angle. As per the Pythagoras Theorem:
“The area of the square created on top of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle would be equivalent to the total of areas of the squares built on the other two sides (Altitude and Base) respectively”.
The figure above illustrates that the total of the areas of the two main squares (yellow β and pink Y) is equal to the area of the square on top of the hypotenuse (α with mixed colors).
Area Square α= α 2
Area Squareβ= β 2
Area Square Y= Y2
Thus the Pythagoras Theorem could be expressed algebraically as:
α 2 + β 2 =Y2
with a right triangle having sides α, βand Y and Y being the hypotenuse.
The Pythagoras theorem even though being invented by Pythagoras was known to people belonging to ancient civilizations like the Babylonians at least thousand years ago. However it is unknown as to how they had made an invention like this and based on what facts they had discovered them.
As per various sources from study circles, Byju’s has been creating some real buzz among students in general. The Pythagorean Theorem taught by Byju’s in an interactive mode is an example of how they have revolutionized the education to an unimaginable level. The tutors at Byju’s have been heard to use audio visual tools along with graphics to make the learning an enjoyable experience without any distraction like conventional learning.
