# Pythagoras Theorem Calculator-Calculate Area & Hypotenuse!

This Pythagorean theorem calculator will calculate the length of any of the missing sides of a right triangle,area of a triangle be it isosceles triangle or equilateral triangle or, area of right angle triangle or the hypotenuse of the right triangle by using the hypotenuse formula.

## What is the Pythagorus theorem?

The Pythagoras theorem is if the sides of a right angle triangle are a and b and the hypotenuse is, the formula is ,

a2 + b2 = c2

This mathematical theorem is credited to be developed in the sixth century BC by the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, . Note that this theory was found used by the Indians and Babylonians, Pythagoras (or his students) , much before Pythagoras who actually popularized it.

## Calculate 3 kinds of triangle

Using this Pythagoras theoram based calculator, you can compute area of following types of triangle:

### Area of a Right Angled Triangle

A right-angled triangle has one angle at 90° and the other two acute angles sums to 90°. Therefore, the height of the triangle will be the length of the perpendicular side. You can compute the area of a right angle triangle by using following formula

Area of a Right Triangle = A = ½ × Base × Height

### Area of an Equilateral Triangle

An equilateral triangle is one whose all the sides are equal. Calculate the area of the equilateral triangle using the following formula:

Area of an Equilateral Triangle = A = (√3)/4 × side2

### Area of an Isosceles Triangle

An isosceles triangle has two of its sides equal and also the angles opposite the equal sides are equal.

Area of an Isosceles Triangle = A = ½ (base × height)

`a² + b² = c²`

You can practice with our Pythagorean theorem calculator .

## Find Sides of Traingle Pythagorous Theorem

Using the Pythagoras theorem, you can find the length of an unknown side and the angle of a triangle. By this theorem, we can derive the base, perpendicular and hypotenuse formula. For example, suppose you want to find the hypotenuse (c) of a right-angled triangle with a base of 7 cm and a height of 8 cm.

Then , use Pythagoras theorem a2 + b2 = c2

c2=72 + 82

c2=49+64=113

c=113

c=√113= 10.6
