# Radical mistake

Algebra Level 3

Sherry is excited to learn about the distributive law, and thinks that it applies to every possible operation. As such, she claims that

$\sqrt{a^2+b^2} = \sqrt{a^2} + \sqrt{b^2} .$

How many ordered pairs of integers $(a, b)$ are there, such that $-10 \leq a \leq 10, -10 \leq b \leq 10$ and

$\sqrt{ a^2 + b^2} = \sqrt{a^2} + \sqrt{b^2} ?$
