A better approximate Pythagorean Theorem (Posted on 2017-02-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Adding half the shorter leg to the longer leg of a right triangle does give a pretty good approximation of the hypotenuse of a right triangle but it is always an overestimate.

Reduce the half to a value where the maximum % error (larger or smaller) is minimized.
