The Pythagorean Theorem Worksheet

This page includes quizzes and practice tests to help you check your knowledge on “The Pythagorean Theorem”. There are three difficulty levels.

These quizzes are good for “learning” as all questions include a “rule” or a “clue”.

You should learn to take your time if you want to be able to apply the rules to the corresponding questions. If you do, you can sort of “figure out” all the correct answers to the questions.

You can take these quizzes and practice tests as often as you want. You may repeat the quizzes until you are able to apply all the rules of “The Pythagorean Theorem” to the questions in the quizzes.

The Rules

When “a” and “b” stand for the lengths of legs of any right triangle where “c” is the hypotenuse’s length, then the sum of the squares of the legs’ lengths equals to the square of the hypotenuse’s length.

This special relationship is represented by the following formula: a2 + b2 = c2

We can apply this same formula if we need to find the length of one leg of a right triangle if we are given the measurements for the other leg’s length and the length of the hypotenuse. 

This “Pythagorean Theorem” is one of the most used and useful formulas that you may learn in mathematics since there are numerous useful applications of the theorem in real-world and every-day settings.

Engineers and architects are using this formula rather extensively when they’re designing or building bridges, ramps, or buildings. If you look around you, you can see so many examples.

Practicing repeatedly is crucial for unlocking your learning potential so you may navigate through the quizzes in this post if you want to boost your knowledge and skills.

You can take all the quizzes as many times as you like.

You really should repeat the quizzes until you manage to apply the rules for “The Pythagorean Theorem” successfully. 

The main idea of these quizzes and practice tests is helping you explore the topic, to think out of your the box, and to learn to apply your knowledge.

Please pass these online quizzes and practice tests on to other students so they also may learn to practice for “The Pythagorean Theorem”.
