Therefore the square on the hypotenuse must equal the sum of these two squares.
A, walking from corner to corner, may be said to diangulate the hypotenuse of the meadow.
The area of a right triangle is 150 square feet, and its hypotenuse is 25 feet.
Each of the other sides is the mean proportional between the hypotenuse and the segment of the hypotenuse adjacent to that side.
If we take away the other two triangles instead, we have left the square on the hypotenuse.
The square on the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equivalent to the sum of the squares on the other two sides.
The perpendicular is the mean proportional between the segments of the hypotenuse.
You cannot write a text-book of geometry without reference to a hypotenuse and triangles and a rectangular parallelopiped.
It usually takes a hypotenuse a long time to discover that it is the longest side of a triangle.
He left it to his family as part of his estate, the rest of which consisted of two mules and a hypotenuse of non-arable land.
In a right triangle (a triangle that has one right angle), the side opposite the right angle. (See Pythagorean theorem.)
