Beyond Pythagoras Math Investigation Pythagoras Theorem: Pythagoras states that in any right angled triangle of sides 'a', 'b' and 'c' (a being the shortest side, c the hypotenuse): a2 + b2 = c2 [IMAGE] E.g. 1. 32 + 42= 52 9 + 16 = 25 52 = 25 2. 52+ 122= 132 3. 72 + 242 = 252 25 + 144 = 169 49 + 576 = 625 132 = 169 252 = 625 All the above examples are using an odd number for 'a'. It can however, work with an even number. E.g. 1. 102 + 242= 262 100 + 576 =
Beyond Pythagoras - Mathematical Investigation 1) Do both 5, 12, 13 and 7, 24, 25 satisfy a similar condition of : (Smallest number)² + (Middle Number)² = (Largest Number) ² ? 5, 12, 13 Smallest number 5² = 5 x 5 = 25 Middle Number 12² = 12 x 12 = 144+ 169 Largest Number 13² = 13 x 13 = 169 7, 24, 25 Smallest number 7² = 7 x 7 = 49 Middle Number 24² = 24 x 24 = 576+ 625 Largest Number 25² = 25 x 25 = 625 Yes, each set of numbers does satisfy the condition.
Introduction The 12th Century saw the move away from the Romanesque architecture which had typified the preceding centuries to the era of the great Gothic cathedrals which were to become the architectural symbol of the middle ages. The transformation was not simply one of size or scope but a manifestation of the cultural shifts which were occurring as the medieval age commenced. By this time, numbers and geometry had acquired a metaphysical significance and were believed to have occult symbolism
Greek Period (600B.C. – 499 A.D.) took mathematics far beyond the realm of counting and measuring time. The Greeks brought a variety of great minds to life, including Thales of Miletus, Archimedes, Apollonius, Euclid, and Democritus. They began using logic to explore new mathematical concepts. Pythagoras of Samos was one of the foremost logical minds of this age. He is the inventor of abstract mathematics, and the founder of the “Pythagoras Theorem”. This theorem is still used today, in modern geometric

The Illuminati have been under the focus of conspiracy theorists for many years and they he been called the puppet masters who secretly pull the strings of the world’s events from elections to revolutions, and from business monopolies to stock market crashes. So what really is “The Illuminati”? It’s considered to be a secret society which has existed even before the Babylonian period as Cathy Burns says, "The signs, symbols, and inscriptions of Illuminati come to us from across long, drifting centuries
gave a newly scientific justification to an idea that had been present in popular thought since ancient Greece. There, Aristotle recorded observing that certain physical traits in people are often linked to distinctive personality traits, and Pythagoras is said to have selected students for his classes based on who “looked” to have potential (Mainwaring 1980). As this concept reached the 18th century, it was given the explanation that God makes a connection between a person’s face and their “inner
