HOW TO USE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM IN OUR CONSTRUCTIONS

In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem, also known as the Pythagorean theorem, is a fundamental relationship in Euclidean geometry between three sides of a right triangle. It states that the area of the square hypotenuse is the sum of the areas of the squares on the other two sides.

a2 + b2 = c2

a     =     side of right triangle

b     =     side of right triangle

c     =     hypotenuse

How To Use This Formula In Your Constructions

We can use this formula to find waist slab length by using this formula

.
GIVEN DATA

Breadth of staircase (a) = 2.750

Height of staircase (b) = 1.425

Length of waist slab (W) = ?

Substituting given data on Pythagorean Theorem

a2 + b2 = c2

(2.750)2 + (1.425)2 = c2

c2 = 7.5625 + 2.030625

c = √(7.5625 + 2.030625)

c = √( 9.593125)

C = 3.09727702991 is length of waist slab

Therefore formula used as

Waist slab = √(breadth) 2+(height) 2
