Treasure Island

Chloe Coleman


A teen's version of the Pythagorean Theorem


a2+b2=c2
What does that even mean?
c2-b2=a2
Math just turns me green.

c2-a2=b2
How am I suppose to know!
Hypotenuse= c2
Didn't people stop this awhile ago?

2 triangle legs= a & b
If thats true then...
a Triangle is abc!

.......Why did I do that again?
