Pythagoras

A right isosceles triangle:

·······································
·······································
·························*············
······················*··*············
···················*··*··*············
················*··*··*··*············
·············*··*··*··*··*············
········································
········································

Here a = 5, b = 5, and so c = 5...not 5 sqrt(2). Yet this is perfectly ordinary Euclidean plane geometry, just that some points are missing...er, actually, almost all of them.

Sorry, Pythagoras, not even smart guys are right every time.

  1. If a^2 + b^2 = c^2
    a = 5
    b = 5

    Then, c^2 = 50
    c = 7.071
