## How do you make a Pythagoras spiral?

To construct a spiral, make a right angle with sides A and B of equal length, which becomes the “1” value. Next, make another right triangle using side C of your first triangle – the hypotenuse – as side A of the new triangle. Keep side B the same length at your chosen value of 1.

**How do you make a spiral in math?**

Ex 1.2, 4 – Chapter 1 Class 9 Number Systems (Term 1)

- Mark a center point O.
- From point O, draw a horizontal line OA of length 1 cm.
- From point A, draw a perpendicular line AB of length 1 cm.
- Join OB, here OB = √2.
- Now, from point B, draw a line perpendicular to OB (Use set squares) of length 1 cm.
- Join OC, here OC = √3.

### How do you build the wheel of Theodorus?

How to Construct the Wheel of Theodorus

- Construct right triangle ABC, with base = 1 unit and height = 1 unit.
- Using hypotenuse AB as the base of the next triangle, construct a perpendicular to line AB through point A.
- Mark off 1 unit as the height of right triangle DBA.
- Construct triangle DBA.

**How do you draw a spiral diagram?**

- Draw a set of semicircular arcs. The easiest way to create a spiral diagram is by drawing and merging semi circular arcs. Go to Auto shapes and select the Arc tool.
- Group alternative arcs and flip them vertically. The next step is to select alternative arcs and color them red using ‘Shape Outline Color’ option.

#### How do you make a 17 root spiral?

From point A, draw a perpendicular line AB of length 1 cm. Join OB, here OB = √2. Now, from point B, draw a line perpendicular to OB (Use set squares) of length 1 cm. Mark the end point as C.
