2 Basic Math by the Definition
This quiz involves well known concepts from basic mathematics, but the actual definitions and theorems are probably not well known to non-mathematicians. I give the definition or theorem, you tell me what's being described. Good Luck!

7 The Square Root of the Problem
Title comes from kyleisalive in the Author Challenges. This quiz walks the quiz taker through a proof that the square root of 3 is irrational. The proof is one that I wrote while taking a course in the history of mathematics.

Some sample questions from this category:

* According to the Pythagorean Theorem, the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to what?
* The Pythagorean Theorem only applies to right-angled triangles. However, there is a more general "law" that governs all triangles in a relationship similar to that of the Pythagorean Theorem. What is the name of this law?
* Moving on several hundred years, in Italy in the 1500s there arose a great dispute between two leading mathematicians named Cardano and Tartaglia over a new method. What was this method?
* Fermat's Last Theorem is undoubtedly the most famous theorem in all of mathematics, first being proposed in the 1600s but not fully solved until the mid 1990s. What method was used to finally solve this centuries-old problem?
* Another famous theorem was first conjectured in the 1800s, but was not solved until 1976 in a highly controversial way: the proof depends on the use of a computer. To which theorem am I referring?
