A maths teacher in France has used Paul Pogba's dab celebration in an effort to teach students Pythagoras's theorem.

The question reads: "Cristiano Ronaldo is jealous of Paul Pogba's dab , then tries to demonstrate that it is not perfect.

“According to the book - The Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Dab - a perfect dab is only if the triangles represented in the figure below are rectangles. Is Paul Pogba's dab perfect?”

Solution

Cristiano would be right. Pogba's dab is not perfect. There are imperfections in the execution of the dab and how he forms the rectangles.

Left arm: (CE)2 = (CD)2 + (DE)2 → 902 = 722 + 542 → 8100 = 2916 + 5184 → 8100 = 8100

Right arm: (FH)2 = (FG)2 + (GH)2 ↔ 422 ≠ 182 + 372 → 1764 ≠ 324 + 1369 → 1764 ≠ 1693
