... ?

Were you trying to prove something? - 12-04-2002golfinguy4
Oy, but the discombobulation of the time space continuim allows that.

Nah, seriously though, it is the spacing in between lines that doesn it. - 12-04-2002face_master
Sorry, thats not equalateral.

Check out my handy little diagram. I got the hypotnuse using pythaogoras and i rounded down the decimal places - 12-04-2002dP munky
true face, but does anyone remember a2 + b2 = c2??

> our way of determining if it was an equilateral triangle is invalid because the pythagorean thereom only applies to right triangles

Sure looks like he did it on a right triangle to me. The contention was that right triangles could be equilateral, so he used pythagoras. - 12-05-2002dP munkyQuote:

if he's contending it's a right equalateral triangle, than you can disprove that hypothesis with pythagoras, since it applies to all rights.

people stop bein so serious. of course the cant be equilateral right triangles. i was joking around b/c of the 5 stars on each side. i was jokingly saying each side had a length of 5 b/c of the 5 stars.
