The theorem is named after the ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras.
Hence, it is called as pythagoras theorem which states that,
sum of the squares of the legs of a triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.
But, also Indian mathematicians and Chinese mathematicians founded it independently, without knowing that of the pythagoras.
