12) In a right-angled triangle, the square on the hypotenuse and the sum of the squares on the other two sides are equal.
Anyone who has taken--and passed--high school geometry knows the Pythagorean theorem: In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
He starts with the discovery of the irrational numbers, like v2, where v2 is clearly present as a geometric object--the length of the hypotenuse of the right angled triangle with unit length sides--but is not allowed for by (early Greek) arithmetic.
The adjustment path is approximated by a trajectory equal to the hypotenuse of a triangle, the other two sides of which are the overall size of the shock ('Size of the Shock' given by the compounded effects of the crises) and the time necessary for the full adjustment, 'Adjustment Periods'.
Somewhere between the area of a rhombus and the definition of hypotenuse, you earned yourself a first-time-ever F .
If we draw out from the center of the circle to the base of this triangle a vertical line, then the two angles formed on both sides of this vertical line will be right-angled, and the [original] triangle, due to this drawn out vertical line, will be halved into two right-angled triangles, and the two lines falling on the two extremities [of the locus of contact] will become hypotenuses of these two right-angled triangles, and the vertical line becomes a hypotenuse of [i.
It suddenly occurred to him that his hypotenuse was in grave danger of being drawn and squared.
Government (city hall), history (museums), and the performing arts (concert hall) anchored the three cardinal points of Mawson's triangular core; he connected these points with grand avenues, ceremonial spaces, and, on the hypotenuse, river parks.
I mean," I muttered, "You got some great stuff in GUNS, but the style is like, "altering the angle of the ogive results in danglin' the hypotenuse of the widgetfactor," and I write like, 'This big fat ballet looks like a Marsh-Wheeling cigar, but it flies okay and whacks crap like your mother-in-law on a bender,' see?
The resulting new hypotenuse evidently is larger than the hypotenuse for the right angle.
When measuring an angle block, errors of a similar origin can occur because the hypotenuse is longer than the sides and consequently optical aberrations are not common mode.
