Given: ΔABC is a right triangle. Prove: a2 + b2 = c2 Right triangle BCA with sides of length a, b, and c. Perpendicular CD forms right triangles BDC and CDA. CD measures h units, BD measures y units, DA measures x units. The following two-column proof with missing justifications proves the Pythagorean Theorem using similar triangles: Statement Justification Draw an altitude from point C to Line segment AB Let segment BC = a segment CA = b segment AB = c segment CD = h segment DB = x segment AD = y y + x = c c over a equals a over y and c over b equals b over x a
