User: The Pythagorean theorem can be used for any type of triangle. True False

Weegy: The Pythagorean Theorem is one of the oldest, most well-known, and widely used mathematical relationship in history. [ It is a relationship between the three sides of a right angled triangle. The theorem states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2, where a and b are the two shorter sides, and c is the hypotenuse - the longest side, the one opposite the right angle. ]

One leg of a right triangle is 12, and the hypotenuse is 20.
a^2+b^2=c^2
12^2+b^2=20^2
144+b^2=400
b^2=400-144
b^2=256
b=16
Therefore, the length of the other lef is 16.

25^2+40^2=c^2
625+1600=c^2
2225=C^2
c=47.1699
