Figure B proves the Pythagorean Theorem.
As you may have noticed, the lengths given for both figures are already perfect squares. All you have to do is add the lengths of the legs to see if they equal the length of the hypotenuse/diagonal.
Figure A: 9 + 36 = 46... not 64
Figure B: 25 + 144 = 169... correct
Figure B proves the Pythagorean Theorem.
Pythagorean Theorem Formula: a^2 + b^2 = c^2
(The numbers are already squared, so just plug them in for a, b, and c, and see if it is a true statement.)
Hope this helps and I hope it made sense.

OMG WHAT THE ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry i don't see a picture. But, I'll explain what should be seen. Make a right triangle. From the angle <B, where B is 90 degrees, draw an altitude down to CA. Call that point D. We see that ABC and BCD are similar triangles. BC/CD=AC/BC, so BC^2=AC*CD. Likewise, ADB is similar to ABC, so we get AB/AD=AC/AB, so AB^2=AD*AC.So we add these equations together for BC^2 and AB^2, to get AC*CD + AD*AC = AC(CD+AD) = AC^2 Thus, a^2 + b^2 = c^2 in a right triangle.

princess, you rock

thank you so much princess

pay day 2 if youre so smart why are you here?

yeah payday! also, this is 8th grade math so LIIIIIAAAAARRRR

This chat is so cursed

Pay day 2 stop acting like you know everything. It's clearly a typo. If you were half as smart as everyone on here put together you would have known that ;)

You are literally just talking to yourself

Thank you princess

Thanks princess❤️

I don't see how the Pythagorean Thearom while help us in life? I'm not just going to go outside and see a triangle and just be like " OkAy!~ nOw LeT MeE fIgUrE oUt ThE PhYtHaGoReAN tHeARoM tO THis"
LIKE NO dat is 

BTW, A would be at the top if the right triangle were standing on its shorter base. C would be on the other side on the bottom right. B would be on the right angle

i knew it was b just didnt know why, thx

u know 9 + 36 is 45 not 46

Is he right

thanks princess!!

Guys Gage is wrong don't listen to him
