Question 3 - Pythagorean Relationship by Justine Chan, Yolanda Shi, Audrey Lam and Chloe Chan

Introduction:

What is the Pythagorean Theorem?

The Pythagorean Theorem is a special theory invented by the mathematician Pythagoras which states a relationship between the three sides of a right-angled triangle, or an angle with one intersecting point of two lines being 90 degrees. The Pythagorean Theorem states that the square of the longest side (mathematically referred to as the “hypotenuse”) is equivalent to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, which, in a diagram, are usually named A and B. The relationship states that the ratio of the lengths of the sides A, B, and C is 3:4:5, also known as the golden ratio.

In Figure 1, a right angle triangle has been drawn. In a lot of drawings, a right-angled triangle being used to prove the Pythagorean Theorem has its sides extended into squares, so as to more easily compare the ratio.

The ratio of the lengths of A:B:C is 3:4:5. For example, if length A were 3 cm, then the length of B would be 4 cm, and the length of C 5 cm, because the Pythagorean relationship states that there*…show more content…*

We also know that the Egyptians unwittingly used the not-yet-invented Pythagorean theorem to structure their pyramids. The Egyptians used rope and formed/knotted twelve sections, all of which was put together and formed a right-angled triangle with a 3:4:5 ratio in length. This was then used to “model” or simulate the real pyramid, because the pyramid could be cut vertically into four right-angled triangles that fit Pythagoras’s

## Maya Pythagorean Theorem

754 Words | 4 PagesThis is not the only allusion to Pythagoras’ theorem during the Egyptian epoch. Right angle geometry goes back to as early as 3000BC, when they were on the precipice of building their Great Pyramids. They are often described as ‘rope stretchers’, and this is because they would measure 3-4-5 triangles to make right angles, presumably for the blocks of their pyramids. They would have a rope tied in a circle with evenly spaced knots, and if the knot were to be pegged to the ground correctly, a 3-4-5 right angle triangle would appear (see Figure 11). It is not clear, however, whether the Egyptians knew the formula or mathematical proof for their method.

To find the unknown mass we set up the equation Fleft*dleft = Fright*dright. We then substituted in the values (26.05 N * 41cm = 34cm * x N) and solved for Fright to get (320.5g). To determine the percent difference we used the formula Abs[((Value 1 - Value 2) / average of 1 & 2) * 100], substituted the values (Abs[((320.5 - 315.8) / ((320.5 + 315.8) / 2)) * 100]) and solved to get (1.58%).

The missing angle would be 90. The reason the sum a triangle 's angles should add up to 180°.The formula that is used for a triangle is b+h+x=180.A right triangle sometimes has a missing angle such as 35+35+? The missing angle would be 90.The reason the missing side would be 90 is because a right triangle has a right angle in it and a right angle always adds up to 90°. My team and I are going to do an experiment on making a triangle in a ramp form.

In order to find the value of n, I first found the number of diagonals in a convex n-gon by applying the formula (n(n-3))/2 in which n stands for the number of sides. In a convex polygon, the number of diagonals form from a single vertex is 3 less than the number of sides, which is represented as n-3. Moreover, since there are n sides, it would give n(n - 3) diagonals.

## How Did Rene Descartes Build Cartesian Coordinates

792 Words | 4 PagesRené Descartes created Cartesian coordinates in order to study geometry algebraically. This form of math involves a plane with a horizontal axis and a vertical axis, named X and Y. As in geometry, both axes, as well as the plane, go on into infinity. Along the axes, points are numbered so that with only two numbers (for example -5, 7) one can know exactly where on the chart to look. This is very useful in computer programming because a computer screen is set up similarly to the Cartesian coordinate plane.

## Nt1330 Unit 1 Program Analysis

1580 Words | 7 PagesFor each distinct pair of the scaled mean vector c and the network size N, the program produces an adjacency matrix of a loop-free digraph (with all diagonal entries 0). To construct the matrix A, the program constructs four matrices A_ij of size Ni by Nj. The elements of these matrices A_ij are either 0 or 1. To assign a value to the element a_ij in the matrix A_ij, the program randomly generates a number from the standard uniform distribution on the open interval (0; 1) and if the number is less than Cij Nj then the element a_ij of the matrix A_ij will take value 1, otherwise the element will be 0. For matrices A_ij with i = j, the diagonal elements are made zero by replacing diagonal elements by zero.
