Math Grade 8 Quiz Using the Pythagorean Theorem in a Coordinate System – 8.G.B.8

The Pythagorean Theorem, a fundamental principle in geometry, states that in a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides. In a coordinate system, this theorem can be applied to calculate the distance between two points by treating the segment between the points as the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
