Pythagoras theorem

Hi  everyone,
Damien, Hana, Paton, and Fatima have been learning about the Pythagoras theorem. First we built our knowledge about the hypotenuse, and we started learning about how you use the Pythagorus rule to find out the hypotenuse. The hypotenuse is the longest line in a right angle triangle.  Yesterday when Miss Holland taught us, we were all confused. But the more we practiced, the more it got clarified.  We learnt that it only works with right angles. Today we had another lesson teaching us that you don't need one of the formulas to figure out the answer, you can use the same formula but you just need to reverse (a^2 + b^2 = C^2) (a^2 = b^2 - c^2) 

We were all in the pit at some time in the process, but in the end we had a breakthrough! We had a lot of struggle but with the help of others and our peers especially our teachers because with their help, (once again)we had a breakthrough!

This is what they might look like:
