Instructions

A “Pythagorean Triple” is a set of positive integers, a, b and c that fits the rule: a2+ b2= c2.

Here is a list of a few Pythagorean Triples:

(3, 4, 5)

(5, 12, 13)

(6, 8, 10)

(7, 24, 25)

(8, 15, 17)

(9, 40, 41)

(10, 24, 26)

(11, 60, 61)

(12, 35, 37)

(13, 84, 85)

(14, 48, 50)

(15, 112, 113)

(16, 63, 65)

(17, 144, 145)

(18, 80, 82)

(20, 21, 29)

(20, 99, 101)

(21, 220, 221)

(23, 264, 265)

Pick a Pythagorean Triple and use the Pythagorean Theorem to verify that

a2+ b2= c2. Create a presentation explaining your step-by-step approach to solving the problem. Your presentation should be done in PowerPoint with Voice Over and should be 1 – 2 minutes in length.
