Pythagorean Theorem

Figures out based on user entry the missing side or missing hypotenuse of a right triangle. In addition, the calculator shows the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and then determines by numerical evaluation if the 2 sides and hypotenuse you entered are a right triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem

Pythagorean Theorem Trig Proofs

Shows the proof of 3 pythagorean theorem related identities using the angle θ:

Sin^{2}(θ) + Cos^{2}(θ) = 1

Tan^{2}(θ) + 1 = Sec^{2}(θ)

Sin(θ)/Cos(θ) = Tan(θ)

Sin

Tan

Sin(θ)/Cos(θ) = Tan(θ)

Right Triangles

This solves for all the pieces of a right triangle based on given inputs using items like the sin ratio, cosine ratio, tangent ratio, and the Pythagorean Theorem as well as the inradius.

Given the rectangular prism below, if AB = 6 in., AD = 8 in. and BF = 24, find the length of FD.
