I've done research on the theorem and still can't figure out why this is true. Can you please help me?Answer by richwmiller(9135)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I suppose it all depends on what you think a^2+b^2=c^2 means. If the legs of the right triangle are a and b and the hypotenuse is c then a^2+b^2=c^2. Someone is pulling your leg.
