# What is the 3d Pythagorean Theorem?

2 min read

##### Asked by: April Jenkins

The 3D Pythagorean theorem formula is **a2+b2+c2=d2** a 2 + b 2 + c 2 = d 2 , where a, b, and c are the dimensions (length, width, and height, in any order) of a rectangular prism, and d is the 3D diagonal.

## Does Pythagorean theorem work in 3 dimensions?

**The Pythagorean theorem can be extended to any number of dimensions, but most importantly three dimensions** so we can use it to find any distance between two points in space.

## What is a 3D right triangle called?

“**Triangular prism**“.

## How do 3D applications apply to the Pythagorean theorem?

*So we have 12 squared plus 5 squared equals C squared this will be 144 plus 25 equals C squared and then this will be 169 equals C squared and then when we square root both sides C will equal 13.*

## What are 3D triangular prism?

A triangular prism is **a 3D shape with two identical faces in the shape of a triangle connected by three rectangular faces**. The rectangular faces are referred to as the lateral faces, while the triangular faces are called bases. The bases are also called the top and the bottom (faces) of the prism.

## How do you do 3D trigonometry?

*Okay so B 2 hitch would be that so an example would be from the top corner of the room you're in the top corner to the opposite bottom corner okay and then from hitch cross F like that okay.*

## Is a rectangular prism 3D?

In geometry, a rectangular prism can be defined as a **3-dimensional** solid shape which has six faces that are rectangles.

## What is the formula to triangular prism?

Triangular prism formulas

**volume = 0.5 * b * h * length** , where b is the length of the base of the triangle, h is the height of the triangle and length is prism length. area = length * (a + b + c) + (2 * base_area) , where a, b, c are sides of the triangle and base_area is the triangular base area.

## How much edges does a 3D rectangle have?

12 edges

A rectangular prism has 6 faces, 8 vertices (or corners) and **12 edges**.

## How many faces does a 3D triangle have?

Triangular Prisms

It’s made up of **5 faces** (2 are triangles, 3 are rectangles). Triangular prisms have 6 vertices and 9 edges!

## How many sides does a 3D triangle have?

3 straight

E.g. a triangle has **3 straight sides** and 3 corners, whereas a circle has 1 curved side but no corners. 3D shapes A 3D shape is a blown up shape. We are learning about the following 3D shapes – sphere, cube, cuboid, cylinder, cone, square based pyramid, triangular based pyramid.
