To verify the pythagoras theorem by Bhaskara method.
The Pythagoras Theorem or the Pythagorean theorem, named after the Greek mathematician Pythagoras states that:
In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite to the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle).
This is usually summarized as follows:
The square of the hypotenuse (longest side) of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides.
For example from Fig. 1, we can write the pythagoras theorem in the form of an equation:
a² + b² = c²
where c is the length of the hypotenuse and
a and b are the lengths of the other two sides of a right triangle.
Bhaskara's proof is also a dissection proof. It is similar to the proof provided by Pythagoras. Bhaskara was born in India. He was one of the most important Hindu mathematicians of the second century AD.
In this activity, we are proving the pythagoras theorem by Bhaskara's method.
