    Ergs = grams times (c in centimeters per second) squared…

    Take the square root of c^2^, and you have the hypotenuse/radius of a right triangle/circle.

    and where s= (a+b+c)/2 {and a, b, and c are the sides of the triangle} then the area of the triangle is…

    √(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) )

    The Gocomics site added the most outside brackets, the whole of the s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) is under the radical sign.

    I thought it was that the sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side.

    I didn’t learn the Pythagorean Theorem until high school. I’d heard of it before then, but I didn’t really know what it was or what it implied, and I certainly couldn’t recite the formula from memory.

    I learned it in fifth grade.

    @Mr Nobody

    I think that’s a right triangle.

    Oz ref! I remember how all the kids in my family pointed out that Scarecrow got it wrong, and the Wizard should take his diploma back.

    But isosceles sounds so much smarter. Anyway, this reminds me of something Steinbeck said in Cannery Row, “the world is once again spinning on greased grooves”.

    Squares, not square roots (they’re opposite).

    Right triangle, not isosceles triangle.

    Not any two sides: C has to be the hypotenuse and A and B have to be the sides adjacent to the right angle.

    Actually, there are an infinite number of pythagorean triples: You can also use 5,12,13, for instance, or 7, 24, 25. In fact, there is a triple starting with each odd number 3 and up, with the other two sides separated by 1. And a bunch of others. And any multiple of those, like 6,8,10, or 10,24,26.

    Thanks. I did have a headache. Now I have a migraine.

    I don’t think in 23 years of being a parent my our local school district, there was one working water fountain on any of the campuses my kids went to. The excuses ranged from poor water pressure to we don’t have the personnel to keep them working. And where I live, it gets into the 100s in the shade at times, even hotter on an asphalt playground.

    So Frazz is nothing but a scheming chiseler. He can’t be trusted.

    @Bigpuma: Now I know you do that on purpose ;)

    You’re quick on the uptake, H. E. G. I like it!
