The most well-known and widely used proof of the Pythagorean Theorem is the one which relates the areas of the squares that have, as their sides, the two legs and the hypotenuse of the triangle. We have referenced this proof in an older post where we have also provided a video that explains this proof of the Pythagorean Theorem in a simple way.
However, what we will discuss in this article is the different proofs that have been done on the Pythagorean Theorem, since many mathematicians have demonstrated this famous theorem in different ways. Let’s look at some of the most well-known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem without going into detail; in later posts, we’ll look at each one specifically and explain them in full detail.
- Pythagoras’ own proof
- Euclid’s proof
- Pappus’ proof
- Bhaskara’s proof
- Leonardo Da Vinci’s proof
- Garfield’s proof
As we said, this is simply a list of the most famous proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. As our website grows, we’ll add more information about each one of these proofs, explaining and developing each one, linking from this article to the articles for each one.
In any case, if you need one of these proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem developed, all you have to do is leave us a comment at the bottom of this post and we’ll add it as soon as possible.
