When written in the correct order, the sentences below create a paragraph proof of the Pythagorean Theorem using the diagram.
Let a represent the height and b represent the base of each triangle.
The area of one triangle is represented by the expression 1/2 ab.
(1) The area of the interior square is (a – b)2.
(2) The length of a side of the interior square is (a – b).
(3) By distribution, the area is a2 – 2ab + b2.
(4) The area of all four triangles will be represented by 4 •1/2 ab or 2ab.
The area of the exterior square is found by squaring side c, which is c2, or by adding the areas of the four interior triangles and interior square, 2ab + a2 – 2ab + b2.
Therefore, c2 = 2ab + a2 – 2ab + b2.
Through addition, c2 = a2 + b2.
Which is the most logical order of statements (1), (2), (3), and (4) to complete the proof?
Answer
