### c - Math with Mr. Leon

```Lesson 9.1
In a right triangle, the side opposite the
right angle is called the hypotenuse.
The other two sides are called legs. In
the figure below, a and b represent the
lengths of the legs, and c represents the
length of the hypotenuse.
En un triángulo rectángulo , el lado opuesto
al ángulo recto se llama la hipotenusa. Los
otros dos lados se llaman catetos. En la
figura de abajo , a y b representan la
longitudes de los catetos, y c representa la
longitud de la hipotenusa.
Existe una relación especial
entre las longitudes de los
catetos y la longitud de la
hipotenusa. Esta relación se
conoce hoy como el Teorema
de Pitágoras
hipotenusa
catetos
There is a special relationship between the lengths of the legs and the length of the
hypotenuse. This relationship is known today as the Pythagorean Theorem.

Length of Small Square = (b – a)
So the base (base) = (b – a) and the height (altura) = (b – a)
This means that the Area of Small Square
Esto significa que el área de la
= (b – a)2
The Area of the 1 triangle =

The Area of the 4 triangles =

= 2
Area of the large square = Area of the small square PLUS the Area of the 4 Triangles
c2= (b – a)2 + 2
c2= b2 – 2ab + a2 + 2
c2= b2 – 2ab + a2 + 2
c2= a2 + b2

Lesson 9.1
The Pythagorean Theorem works for right triangles, but does it work for all triangles?
A quick check demonstrates that it doesn’t hold for other triangles.

Lesson 9.2
Three positive integers that work in the Pythagorean equation are called
Pythagorean triples.
El inverso del Teorema de Pitágoras
Si las longitudes de los tres lados de un triángulo satisfacen la
ecuación de Pitágoras, entonces el triángulo es un triángulo
rectángulo.

Lesson 9.3
In this lesson you will use the
to discover some relationships
between the sides of two special right triangles. One of these special triangles is an
isosceles right triangle, also called a 45°-45°-90° triangle. Each isosceles right triangle is half
a square, so these triangles show up often in mathematics and engineering.
En esta lección usted usará el

dos triángulos rectángulos especiales . Uno de estos
triángulos especiales es un triángulo rectángulo
isósceles, también llamado un 45 °-45 °-90 ° triángulo.

Investigation 1
In this investigation you will simplify radicals to discover a relationship between the
length of the legs and the length of the hypotenuse in a 45°-45°-90° triangle.
To simplify a square root means to write it as a multiple of a smaller radical without
using decimal approximations.

Investigation 2
Another special right triangle is a 30°-60°-90° triangle, also called a 30°-60° right triangle,
that is formed by bisecting any angle of an equilateral triangle. The 30°-60°-90° triangle
also shows up often in mathematics and engineering because it is half of an
equilateral triangle. In this investigation you will simplify radicals to discover
a relationship between the lengths of the shorter
and longer legs in a 30°-60°-90° triangle.
