The scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz stated that the sum of the squares of any 2 sides in an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side.

If that's supposed to be the Pythagorean Theorum, he said it totally wrong.

The Pythagorean Theorum states that in a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the 2 other sides.

I'm not a geometry wiz, but I do know that what the scarecrow said in the movie was not the correct statement of the Pythagorean Theorum.


No right angles in an isosceles triangle.

I deem the above equation to be false ~ I always derive from drink. unsure.gif blink.gif

I realize that an isosceles triangle is not a right triangle. I just don't know if what the scarecrow said about an isosceles triangle is true.

Nope, not true. It was scripted incorrectly by the Oz film team, Bolger recited from script; it was supposed to be the Pythagorean Theorum. It also was not the Triangle Inequality Theorum. (careful with that acronym mellow.gif )

That's what I thought. I'm sure the film team team wanted the scarecrow to say the correct thing, having just received a degree in Thinkology. They screwed that up. laugh.gif

I have wondered a long time on this:

Is there one equation that can determine the length of one side of an octagon when that octagon's overall width (side to side) matches that of a square of which the width is given?

Or
side square = 10
determine side of square's inscribed octagon

Yeah, I've often wondered that too, stu.... unsure.gif . On days like today when
I'm off work and needing something unfathomable to contemplate rolleyes.gif .

Still contemplating Stusson's complex problem above but in the interim, Yahoo
has posted a list of the top 10 best and worst jobs for 2012 compiled by
CareerCast. Among the top 10 BEST jobs:

10. Mathematician

2012 pay: $99,191
2011 pay: $94,178
Change in pay: +5.3%
Change on list: down 7

“Mathematician has always been in our top 10,” Lee said. “The primary reason here is that the basis of all science is math … Math skills are always in great demand."

So all you mathmatically minded guys (and gals?) out there...this could be your future!
(Personally, I suck at math, even worse than spelling! unsure.gif )

NO SOLUTION

I wasn't paying attention when I made the equation.

Tan(90)

Not being 'big' in math - is that a equation or a statement?

It is Trig. He is asking for the Tan of 90 degrees which is Undefined/0/infinity; depending on how you're using it.
