# Pythagorean Theorem Formula?

Okay, I had this in my head for a while, and I just now decided to post it.

Let's say you have a side, $a$.

If it's odd, the second side is $$\frac{a^{ 2 } - 1}{2} = b$$

else the second side is $$\frac{a^{ 2 } - 4}{4} = b$$

The third side is $\sqrt{(a^{2} + b^{2})}$

I've personally found nothing to disprove this, please post anything if you have disproved it. ((No negative numbers or zero guys, even though the formulas won't break if you do it.))
