      In this video I highlight the facts about Pythagoras as well as the controversy surrounding his contributions. And, expanded to four-dimensional space-time, it plays a pivotal role in Einstein's theory of relativity.

Narrated by Jason Youngman.The Pythagorean Theorem is a statement in geometry that shows the relationship between the lengths of the sides of a right triangle – a triangle with one degree angle.

The right triangle equation is a 2 + b 2 = c 2. Being able to find the length of a side, given the lengths of the two other sides makes the Pythagorean Theorem a useful technique for construction and navigation.
