You got one of the words right. But the other need to be related to "complain".

I think it's time for a bonus question.
Bonus Question 1: If I have an isosceles triangle to which Pythagoras’ Theorem applies, what are its three angles?

Nope. Come on, what kinds of triangles does Pythagoras' Theorem apply to?

I've been trying to think back to 10 years ago. If I'm right, that theorem can only apply to an isosceles triangle if it's a scalene, but made into and isosceles (like holding it to a mirror and doubling it symmetrically).

I think that's about 53, 53, 74 if that's the case. Worth a guess (even if it is laughable as I'm trying to guess by drawing triangles on a page with a pen :lol:)

I'm probably miles off altogether :mrgreen:

None of the triangles guessed so far are covered by Pythagoras' theorem…

Yes, helium is indeed this precious resource that's being foolishly squandered. :tssk: There's a very good Dara O Briain clip about it, but I can't seem to find it on YouTube…

I didn't even notice this question, but it's used sometimes after certain vowels to replace S from what I've seen. Nit always though as they have S too.

The clue to your second sentence is in your first sentence. :P

Hmm, I'd like an explanation of why exactly it's used instead of S…

All may reanswer.
