Pythagoras was an Ionic Greek Philosopher who went on to create the religious movement Pythagoreanism. Pythagorus is known as a mystic, mathematician, and scientist who is best known for Pythagorean theorem. This theorem is used in mathematics, which says that in any right triangle (a triangle with a right angle opposite a hypotenuse) the sides of the two legs (sides "a" and "b") squared and added together will equal the length of the hypotenuse squared, thus: a^2+b^2=c^2 (^meaning power, or "a-squared+b-squared=c-squared).
