5. Whose formula for triangles says that the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides?

Pythagoras' rule for right angled triangles: the square of the hypotenuse (the longest side) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. It always seems to work!

9. What will applying the formula: 'Multiplying the base and the height and then dividing by two' give you an answer for?

10. Which area of Mathematics deals with protractors, segments, circumferences and sectors?
