Kristel's Triangle Scribe Post

This is a right triangle because it has a right angle (90 degrees).

A triangle has 3 sides. The horizontal and vertical line are the legs.
The diagonal line is called the hypotenuse.

Side b is 3 cm, side a is 4 cm an and side c, the hypotenuse is unknown.

To find how long the hypotenuse is you can measure it with a ruler or use a formula called Pythagorean Theorem.

The formula is a squared + b squared = c squared.

This is how you would use the formula with this right triangle-

a squared + b squared = c squared
(4 cm squared) + (3 cm squared) = c squared
16 cm squared+ 9 cm squared = c squared
25 cm squared = c squared (with square root over both of them
5 cm = c


  1. Good Job Kristel! I really liked how you used the colors to identify important terms. But i think you should put a little more information. Anyway nice job.

  2. Good job Kristel! I liked how you used colour to point out the important words but maybe you could use a little more. I agree with Kevin, maybe next time include a little more information to help you explain your statements. However, I think everything was well done. Keep up the great work! =)

  3. Great Job Kristel!I like how you played with the fonts and the color.But ^^ said was true,you should explain more.Great Job anyways!

  4. Great Job! I like how you post is neat and how you added the picture, your post was a little bit short but otherwise GREAT JOB!

  5. Great Job Kristel i like how you colored and identify the important terms.Next time include a little more information to help you explain the statements.Great Job Kristel

  6. Great job Kristel! I liked how you used colour to point out important words and I liked your picture. I would like to point out that you should have had a little square in the corner of the triangle to show the right angle, but that's okay. I also agree with ^ all of them, maybe next time you could explain more. Otherwise, I think it was a great post. Good job!(:

  7. Great job Kristel! I understood what you explained very clearly and made me get a better point of view on this unit. Good job! (Y)

  8. Good job Kristel! I liked how you colored important words but I think you missed the symbol of the right angle in the corner but anyways good job! Keep it up!

  9. Good job, Kristel ! On your first picture, you forgot to put the little square in the bottom to show it's a right triangle. I really liked how you made the colors different for the important words .
    Keep it up :)

  10. Excellent Job Kristel (: I really liked your first picture but you forgot to put the box to say it is a right triangle. Your post is very neat and understandable. Once again Excellent Job !
