# Pythagorean Exploration

Use the area and length tools to explore the relationship between the lengths of side A, B, and C and the squares attached to the triangle.

How is the length of a side related to the area of the square attached to that side?

How are the three squares related to each other?

How can you find the *area* of square C if you have the *area* of square A and the *area* of square B?

How can you find the*length*of side C if you have the

*length*of side A and the

*length*of side B?

Write a *formula* relating A = *length* of side A, B = *l**ength* of side B, and C = *length* of side C.
