2. Since the fourth century AD, Pythagoras has commonly been given credit for discovering the Pythagorean theorem. The Pythagorean Theorem is a theorem in geometry that states that in a right-angled triangle the area of the square on the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares of the other two sides.
