A “Pythagorean Triple” is a set of positive integers, a, b and c that fits the rule: a2+ b2= c2.

Here is a list of a few Pythagorean Triples:

 (3, 4, 5) (5, 12, 13) (6, 8, 10) (7, 24, 25) (8, 15, 17) (9, 40, 41) (10, 24, 26) (11, 60, 61) (12, 35, 37) (13, 84, 85) (14, 48, 50) (15, 112, 113) (16, 63, 65) (17, 144, 145) (18, 80, 82) (19, 180, 181) (20, 21, 29) (20, 99, 101) (21, 220, 221) (23, 264, 265)

Pick a Pythagorean Triple and use the Pythagorean Theorem to verify that

a2+ b2= c2. Create a presentation explaining your step-by-step approach to solving the problem. Your presentation should be done in PowerPoint with Voice Over and should be 1 – 2 minutes in length.
