I'm actually really flabbergasted right now - i can't believe how ignorant some people are. You CAN'T use pythagorean's theorem on an equilateral or isosceles triangle. Just got in a debate with someone who figured you could. Wikipedia it next time, and when someone proves you wrong... admit it... don't get mad?

my ghetto science teacher explained to me that "ignorant" and "ignint" are two TOTALLY DIFFERENT things... =/

you fought with a kid over the Pythagorean theorem?
Well, you could use the theorem on an isosceles if you bisect it

Didn't fight with him - just tried to explain to him when it would/wouldn't work. Heaven forbid a University calculous student should understand these things. Little shit got all uppity =P
If right triangle can be isosceles, so you can use the pythagorean theorem on an isosceles triangle, just not all isosceles triangles.
Apperantly ignant means "yousa a stupid FOO!!"

You can when you divide them into two equal triangles which then contain a right angle

For that statement, Chickenwing1, you are a god amongst men.

If right triangle can be isosceles, so you can use the pythagorean theorem on an isosceles triangle, just not all isosceles triangles.

Hmmmm.... I don't think so.... all right angled triangles with 2 equal sides will always be equilateral triangles, and wouldn't be counted as isosceles, as if 2 sides are the equal, so will the third one, and the definition of an isosceles triangle is that it has 2 equal sides, and 2 equal angles, and can be bisected into two right angled triangles. Although you can use pythagoras' theorum to eventually work out the unknown side of an isosceles triangle.

That's an extremely convoluted statement but 100% correct

But yeah.... I hated Maths.... so why did I take it at A-Level even at university I haven't escaped it...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_cosines

read up noobs. the pythagorean theorum is just a simplified version of the law of cosines, which can be used to figure the angles and sides of ANY triangle. the only reason the pythagorean theorum applies only to right triangles is because the cosine of 90 degrees is 0, so that nomial is cancelled out.
