PROOF OF PYTHAGORAS THEOREM USINGVEDIC MATHEMATICS
Let's start by looking at a square whose side length is (a+b). We can mark a point on the side that divides it into segments of length a and b. Here arethree examples, using different lengths for legs a and b:Inside the blue square let's construct a yellow square of side length c. Itscorners must touch the sides of the blue square. The remainder of the spacewill consist of four blue congruent abc triangles. Here it is for our examplesquares:In each case, the area of the larger blue square is equal to the sum of theareas of the blue triangles and the area of the yellow square.Since the area of a square is (side length)
2
and the area of a triangle is1/2(base)(height), we can write the equation:
 
(a+ b)
2
= c
2
+ 4[(1/2)a b] 
(a+b)(a+b) = c
2
+ 2ab 
a
2
+ 2ab + b
2
= c
2
+ 2ab
 Now subtract the 2ab from both sides of the equation, and we have thePythagorean theorem:
