337 Words
A right triangle has three three sides, a, b, and c. There must be a^2+ b^2=c^2 The formula is true regardless of what its surrounding is. I always believed that math is an eternal truth—a truth independent of space-time. Math is my soul mate. In China, being skilled at math means being smart.

Accepted to UPenn
