At the finite elliptic sphere radius R

Pythagoras' theorem fails, because at non-equal coefficients (9) the square area upon hypotenuse is smaller than the sum of square areas upon catheters:

Alternatively, the errors could be detected and corrected by repeating the mapping, and perimeter and area calculations, using the Dutch coordinates, or simply by using

Pythagoras' Theorem on both sets of coordinates as printed to locate and correct errors in both.

After reading it, I believe

Pythagoras' Theorem should be renamed to suit its origins in Africa where it was practised 1000 years before Pythagoras set foot on the continent.

Every one of them got

Pythagoras' theorem question right on the final exam.

India discovered

Pythagoras' theorem 300 years before his birth.

I have lost count of the number of times our so-called `top' jockeys have made a similar decision, when a simple application of

Pythagoras' theorem would tell them that any extra distance travelled by taking their mount to the outside is insignificant compared to the ground conceded by even a minor loss of momentum.

This is not totally surprising as these students had had no exposure to

Pythagoras' Theorem at this stage.

A GRAMMAR school pupil during the 1960s, I never had any problems with arithmetic, but algebra and geometry -

Pythagoras' theorem apart - were the stumbling blocks that denied me a GCE in maths.

If my results had relied solely on me spending a couple of hours in a stark school hall, clock ticking loudly, as I tried to get to grips with photosynthesis, the Treaty of Versailles and

Pythagoras' theorem, I would have imploded.

This plainly didn't add up for someone who thought

Pythagoras' Theorem was a rock band.

And using the

Pythagoras' Theorem in the right triangle [DELTA]ABB', one has

Critical certifications eliminate the need to secure a "Hot Work" permit, and a single user can use the on-board mathematics to calculate volume, area and

Pythagoras' theorem while still in the field.
