Answer in Geometry for Mbalenhle #215891
1.2 Make a sketch or a diagram of the first four –
(a) square numbers (2)
(b) triangular numbers (2)
1.3 Set up a number pattern with six terms each, for
(a) square numbers (3)
(b) triangular numbers (3)
1.4 Describe and explain the Pythagoras theorem for right angled triangles (5)
1.5 Sketch a detail example in real life of an application of the Pythagoras theorem (4)
Pythagoras theorem for right angled triangles states that the square of hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
Hypotenuse2 = Perpendicular2 + Base2
pythogreous theorem can be used in archiecture and construction to determine the length of a diagonal connecting two sides.
for example ,it can be used to determine the length of a ladder to be used in the building.
