    help with Pythagorean Theorem please?

    Hi, I am really having trouble with this question. My geometry book doesn't explain how to do this very well, and I would be so grateful for some help!

    Question: Give the complete satement, a diagram, and derivation of the pythagorean Theorem.

    Thank you sooo much!!

    Thank you so much!!
    Strange as there's over 400 proofs for the Pythagorean theorem.

    My favorite is the square within a square proof (assuming you know the statement and a little geometry, you should be able to work this one out).
