WILL MEDAL
Prove the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem using similar triangles. The Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem states that when the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs of the triangle equals the squared length of the hypotenuse, the triangle is a right triangle. Be sure to create and name the appropriate geometric figures.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can reason that when pythegoream theorem is shown with diagrams and that equation it precisely says that squares constructed above the triangles are exactly as described with that equation and as such it is proven!!
