Gina and Sean drew the following figures to prove the Pythagorean Theorem c2 = a2 + b2. Both figures are made of two squares and four identical right triangles, as shown below. Gina and Sean wrote the following proofs. Gina’s Proof: Step 1: Area of PQRS = (a + b) 2 = a2 + b2 + 4ab Step 2: Area of triangle PKN =; hence the area of 4 triangles = 4ab Step 3: Area of KLMN = c2 = area of PQRS – area of 4 triangles = a2 + b2 + 4ab – 4ab Hence, c2 = a2 + b2
