Pythagoras' Theorum Thingy

Postby cloudymoon » Wed May 02, 2012 8:28 pm

I am trying to teach my nephew some maths that he is trying to understand, namely Pythagoras' rule about right angles but am I correct in telling him how to remember it is by repeating the following

"A squaw on a hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the squaws on the other two hides"

Been a loooooong time since I sat behind a decaying desk but I wonder if my memory has served me well in this .......... :hypnotized:
