Extended Pythagoras Theorem Using Hexagons

  •  Luis Teia    


This article provides the geometric and algebraic proof of the variant equation of the Pythagorean theorem x^2-xy+y2=z^2 . The hypothesis that will be proven is that just as squares govern the original version x^2+y^2=z^2 , hexagons are found to govern x^2-xy+y^2=z^2 . Both the special case x=y  and general case of x≠y  are examined.
