Once upon a time, there was a small town called Pythagora. The town was well known for its golden temple which was built by the great mathematician, Pythagoras. Every day, the town’s children gathered around the temple and asked questions about the mathematical theories of Pythagoras.
One day, a group of kids asked, “What is Pythagoras Theorem?” Pythagoras had taught them in the past, but they could not recall exactly what it was. So, the wise priest called a magical sage who could answer all their questions.
The sage said, “Pythagoras Theorem is a theorem in geometry. It states that, in a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse (the longest side) is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides.”
The children were amazed by this and started asking more questions about it. The sage kept giving them easy examples to understand and relate to everyday life.
For example, he said, “Imagine a triangle ABC, with three unequal sides. If you draw a square on each side and then add the areas, the result will be equal to the area of the square drawn on the hypotenuse.
The children were very impressed and could clearly understand the theorem. After a while, the sage asked, “Now, Can anyone tell me why it is important to know this theorem?”
The children looked at each other and one of them said, “It is important to know this theorem because it can help us calculate many things. This theorem can be used to calculate the area and perimeter of a triangle and calculate the distance between two points. It is also helpful in solving geometry problems and calculating angles.”
The sage nodded approvingly and said, “That’s right. Pythagoras Theorem helps us to find many answers in maths and geometry. This theorem helps us to think outside the box and find solutions to complex problems.”
The children were inspired by the sage’s words. They thanked him for teaching them the theorem and for helping them to understand the importance of this theorem.
Pythagoras Theorem is an important part of mathematics and geometry. It teaches us to think outside the box and find solutions to complex problems.
