Kitty Ferguson takes us from antiquity to the Seventh and eighth centuries in Rome and Ptolomey and talks a lot about the fake writings of Pythogoras, there are over forgeries of Pythagoras. Pythagoras demonstrating his Pythagorean theorem in the sand using a stick. This is a great read for 2, years of rational thinking and thought.

Example Cube Roots If the volume of a cube is known, its edge length is the number that when multiplied by itself 3 times is equal to the volume. All Categories. There is evidence that he valued relationships between numbers such as those embodied in the so-called Pythagorean theorem, though it is not likely that he proved the theorem. If a segment is not vertical or horizontal, you can treat it as the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
