Please explain Pythgoras Theorem

So, Pythgoras Theorem mostly deals with right-angled triangles, ie a triangle with one 90 degree angle. The slanted side is called the hypotenuse and let us denote it as c the bottom is called the adjacent, let's denote it a and the standing side is called opposite, let's denote it b. Now, Pythgoras Theorem states that: c^2 = a^2 + b^2 This theorem is often used to find the sides of triangles which can then be used to find other angles in the triangles. And there you have it, Pythgoras Theorem!
