I've never seen that before. It was kind of funny. Does anybody know what the answer is? I tried to solve it in my head, but I forget how to solve it. And it doesn't help that I'm horrible at algebra either.

[SIZE=+0]Pythagorean Theorem

x=3
[/SIZE]
²[SIZE=+0] + 4[/SIZE]²
[SIZE=+0] x=9+16
[/SIZE][SIZE=+0]x=(square root)25
x=5

Bah!?!? Don't you know your Pythagoras triplets?(whatever they are called :p)
3, 4, 5
5, 12, 13
7, 24, 25
8, 15, 17

As for the triangle one yes, i noticed that it wasn't a triangle either. I thought they cheated and modified one of the pieces. But upon closer inspection the gradient of one triangle did not match the other.

What are the roots of 8^(1/3) AKA the cube roots of 8.
