Actually, this is a very clever way to visually show that a square with sides c x c (call it square C) is equal to two squares with sides a x a (square A) and sides b x b (square B).

The green line's only purpose is to show that baby squares A and B are constructed from mommy square C.

It's a little harder to imagine that sides a, b and c can be variables, but watching the animation gives you a mental image that what's happening is generally applicable.

Also interesting, if you mentally reduce the Blue Square (call it square D) to zero, you can imagine sides a and b becoming the same length (and consequently Squares A and B becoming equally sized).

Hope this helps. I paraphrase Einstein: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Thanks +Majid Dawood Khan for the share.

This can be called WTF theorem...

I do get it........

That's kinda of a sick way to explain the Pythagorean theorem, but still, math doesn't cease to amaze me!

I wonder if this is how Pythagoras got his theorem?

Simple curiosity

My math teacher in 9th grade showed us this.

I know some similar methods, but this one is great

excellent example

im in math now and i still dont get it

Me, i just believe that a2 + b2 = c2. I can work from that.

Used to square up rooms in buildings with this.good way to duoble check

awesome, that is so awesome

i was tought this today in math class. (im in 6th grade)

I dont know any other way to find the area of a triangle.

I dont know any other way to find the area of a triangle.

im in 8th dont know how to find the area at all xD

me too im in 8th high algerbra and i still dont get that cuz like....... hmmmm.

Square of the hypotenuse equals the sum of squares catete

a^2+b^2=c^2

easy

easy

good observation...........great............

wow

nice............

very nice

yes you DO use math in everyday life!

It's Pythagorean theorem(;

Move the triangle created by a square. The area of the square is the square side. Area of larger square Rabbi square of the hypotenuse. Correspondence of the area is equal to the square of the small squares of the legs. The sum of the squares of the same small area of the larger squares. From this we see a ^ 2 = a ^ 2 + b ^ 2

it's so straightforward...

omg.... why cant teachers teach it like that!!! dumb teachers! god!

Because there was no google+ when you were in math class. Now show it with your kids.

Actually, I learned that last year...

pythogerus theorem.

+Arjun Mahesh : Who is that : pythogerus? =))) ahahhaha LOOOL. You mean : Pythagoras ....

omg koolio

so easy :D

wow............ who cares????? its stupid BECAUSE its common sense

dont think it can be explained any better

Its the only way it made sense to me

if you paid attention in math class you would already know this its called the Pythagorean Theorem ( c2 = a2 + b2 )

Like i paid attention in math class

:D

now thats cool

por eso siempre me gusto la geometria! xD

it likes geometry...and satan

trigonometry!

i'm in fifth grade and i already know that

In school we were taught to solve problems and memorize the methods, no need to actually understand the principles behind them.

well, 26 years after, I understood that ~~_~~,

if u never learned

this pythagorean proof u got issues

had to prove this one

years ago
