Pythagoras' Invention of the Pythagorean Theorem - ... To solve this equation, place 3^2 to the right side, which makes it negative. The equation then become this: b^2=5^2-3^2. After subtracting the squares of 5 and 3, you get b^2=16 . Then if you root 16 (√16), you get 4, therefore b=4. And a new form of the theorem appeared: b^2=c^2-a^2. If you do some rearrangements, a^2=c^2-a^2 also works the same. Generally, the Pythagorean Theorem works with different form of algebraic equations by rearranging a^2+b^2=c^2, to solve different cases.
