Begin with a right triangle with sides: a, b, and hypotenuse c.
Determine the area two ways:
Heron's Formula & A = (½)ab
Equate and manipulate these equations to end up with the Pythagorean Theorem.
i) Let the sides of a triangle have lengths a, b, and c. The semiperimeter is p = (a + b + c) / 2 and let A be the area. Heron's ...
This problem relates Heron's formula with the Pythagorean theorem.
