What are real life applications of Thales Theorem?
Thales' theorem can be used to construct the tangent to a given circle that passes through a given point.
Ingeometry,Thales' theoremstates that if A, B and C are points on acirclewhere the lineACis adiameterof thecircle, then theangleABC is aright angle. Thales' theorem is a special case of theinscribed angle theorem, and is mentioned and proved on the 33rd proposition, third book ofEuclid'sElements. It is generally attributed toThales of Miletus, who is said to have offered an ox (probably to the godApollo) as a sacrifice of thanksgiving for the discovery, but sometimes it is attributed toPythagoras.
