Pythagorean Coffee

The design on the floor of this coffee shop contains a classic proof of the Pythagorean Theorem. The proof is left as an exercise for the reader.

OK, for those of you who don’t want to do the exercise, I’ll post a proof (or more likely, a link to the proof, because I’m too lazy to make the necessary diagrams) later.
