The Pythagoras Theorem means (a)squared plus (b)squared = (c)squared.

It works with a right angled triangle.

The question for this is usually a tree which has fallen down.

For example a was 3cm and b was 4cm. C would be 5cm.

(3x3)+(4x4)=25

=5x5

a + c is the whole tree. When c falls off, what is the distance from the stump?

Try drawing this in a book (make sure it is a right angled triangle).
