This is awesome

Two teens came up with a trigonometric proof of the Pyhtagoream Theorem … something mathematicians have been unable to do. 

And the truly great part is that they aren't math whizzes. They just put their heads together and figured out a solution to a problem for extra credit and a little cash incentive. 

The sad part is that they received some backlash because they are black women, "who couldn't possibly have solved this" because people are just too stupid to accept that we are all just people - born with the same innate curiosity and ability to solve problems.
