A visual representation for an algebraic equation found to
be true for every right triangle. Do you see what I see?

The theorem of Pythagoras can be thought of as the sum of
the areas of "squares" whose side lengths are the legs of
any right triangle. The resulting area is the same as the
area of the square whose length is the hypotenuse of the same
right triangle!
