## How do you verify the Pythagorean theorem by Bhaskara method?

A = c^2 = a^2 + b^2, concluding the proof. In this proof, Bhaskara began with a right triangle and then he drew an altitude on the hypotenuse. From here, he used the properties of similarity to prove the theorem.

## Who first proved Pythagoras?

Euclid was the first to mention and prove Book I, Proposition 47, also known as I 47 or Euclid I 47. This is probably the most famous of all the proofs of the Pythagorean proposition.

### Did Archimedes invent pi?

The first calculation of π was done by Archimedes of Syracuse (287–212 BC), one of the greatest mathematicians of the ancient world. Archimedes knew that he had not found the value of π but only an approximation within those limits. In this way, Archimedes showed that π is between 3 1/7 and 3 10/71.

Can you use the Pythagorean theorem for 3D triangles?

Pythagoras’ theorem can be used to solve 3-dimensional problems which involve calculating the length of a right-angled triangle. It may be necessary to use Pythagoras’ theorem more than once in a problem.

#### What is the famous line of Pythagoras?

“Be silent or let thy words be worth more than silence.” “If there be light, then there is darkness; if cold, heat; if height, depth; if solid, fluid; if hard, soft; if rough, smooth; if calm, tempest; if prosperity, adversity; if life, death.” “No one is free who has not obtained the empire of himself.
