MANOJ KUMAR SIVASTAV*

Abstract


The relationship among base, height and hypotenuse of right handed triangle leads to develop an important formula in mathematics and it is called Pythagoras theorem. There are different types of mathematical methods in geometric and algebraic which will prove this theorem. Proof using similar triangles and Euclid’s proof are most important methods used to prove the theorem. In this paper it is tried to show the importance and use of parallelogram theory to develop the Pythagoras theorem.

Keywords


triangle, parallelogram, Pythagoras.
