• Around 530B.C. he finally settled in Croton, a Greek colony in southern Italy.
• His followers pursued the religious rites and practices developed by Pythagoras, called the Pythagorean Therom.
The Pythagorean Therom
• The Pythagorean Therom is that in any right triangle , the area of the squares whose side is the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two sides that meet at a right triangle.
