Pythagorean Theorem

In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle). In other words: a² + b² = c² 
Hey, look, all the triangles are the same size…and yes, this one is dedicated to Piet Mondrian! ;)

    Lovely intersection of math and modern art. There are many ways to prove the so-called Pythagorean Theorem, and this one...
