1. Good, I don't evn know when i'd use that in school. lol
2. Umm......not quite, curved space remember :D The Pythagorean theorem is incorrect due to curved space. The one with angles was a hint. Okay I won't ask anymore curved space questions.
3. Ok, i'll use an example to explain it. Let's say there's a ladder up against a wall. If you know the height of the wall, and the distance from the wall to the part of the ladder touching the ground, you can figure out the length of the ladder. Correct?
4. Lol, that is what I was taught either.

As for mine, I meant how is it used, what does it do

Lol, baseball and civil war.
5. That's what they teach us. So blame the education system.

???

Fort Sumter. Important because it started the American Civil War.
6. No, it can never be applied that way, since space is never flat. That is old Euclidean geometry, outdated.

The challenge is how is it applied not what it is.

Anyways, I would like the answer to the baseball question.
7. I was going by standard Geometry.

A^2 + B^2 = C^2

You want the answer for mine?

Agreed.
8. Umm...WRONG! IT IS NOT 180 DEGREES

Well here is why. 180 degrees is using Newtonian physics where space is flat. However the fabric of spacetime is curved. The difference is very very slight ( undetectable unless it is a huge triangle ), however it is still there. Thanks to Einstein :D

Anyways, if you drew a triangle between the Sun, Pluto and Earth, the difference will be visible ( or better, try to draw a triangle on a ball ).

Here is another question: How do you apply the Pythagorean theorem?

As for your question: I have no idea ( well, we will work on a honor system, both promising not to check the internet, sound fair? )
9. 180 degrees. A little too easy.

What important Fort was the(supposed) birthplace of baseball?
10. Ah okay, what is the sum of all angles in a triangle.
