pythagorean visualization

remember learning that relation about a triangle with a right angle: A squared plus B squared equals C squared?  i think a lot of people can rattle that off off right behind E equals M c squared.  

the relation actually refers to the area inside the squares whose sides are the lengths of the edges of a right triangle. 

a little visualization goes a long way to understanding the popular phrase, eh?!
