Pythagorean Theorem/Distance Formula (Math Rap)

Written by Mike Wilson

[Introduction]

Need to find the distance of a line

Make a right triangle

Add two sides

[Right Triangle]

Don’t you see what it do?

That line’s a hypotenuse

With a horizontal and vertical side that came out the blue

Horizontal leg x2 minus x1

Vertical leg y2 minus y1

Bam, right triangle

Holla at Py-tha-GO-RON

[Pythagorean Theorem]

I mean Pythagorean I know you prolly seen it

The equation is so old, Should be inside a museum

Two legs, call them A and B

Join together at 90 degrees

Opposite the corner, hypotenuse

Usually gets a C

So a2 + b2 = c2

See there’s Pythagoras

a2 + b2 = c2

See there’s Pythagoras

[How To Use Pythagorean Theorem]

Now we use the known

To solve for the unknown

Algebra the problem

Until we done-zo

Plug in A and B

Then we find the squares

Then we sum them up

But C squared is still there

On the other side of the sign

So square root on both sides

Power 2 goes FireFly

And the C gets simplified

And I’m out!
