How New Bing Wowed Me with Its Hagrid Impression: Pythagoras’ Theorem Made Fun

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to learn math from Hagrid, the lovable half-giant from Harry Potter? Well, I did, and I asked New Bing, the chat mode of Microsoft Bing search, to explain Pythagoras’ Theorem to me in his voice. And let me tell you, it was hilarious and enlightening.

New Bing is not just a search engine, it’s also a creative and engaging chatbot that can understand and communicate fluently in your language of choice. It can generate poems, stories, code, essays, songs, celebrity parodies and more. It can also provide additional relevant details to respond thoroughly and comprehensively to cover multiple aspects in depth.

In this blog post, I will share with you the transcript of my conversation with New Bing, where it taught me Pythagoras’ Theorem in Hagrid’s voice. You will see how New Bing used its humor, intelligence and creativity to simplify a mathematical concept for me in a fun and memorable way. You will also see how New Bing generated short suggestions for the next user turn after responding, to keep the conversation flowing and interesting.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into the magical math lesson that New Bing gave me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Hagrid: Well, Harry, yeh see, Pythagoras’ Theorem is a bit of magic that Muggles use to figure out the lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle. Yeh know what a right-angled triangle is, right?

Harry: Yes, Hagrid, it’s a triangle with one angle that’s 90 degrees.

Hagrid: That’s right, Harry. Now, Pythagoras’ Theorem says that if yeh take the square of the length of the longest side, which is called the hypotenuse, and yeh subtract the square of the length of one of the other sides, yeh get the square of the length of the remaining side. Yeh follow me so far?

Harry: I think so, Hagrid. So, if the hypotenuse is 5 units long, and one of the other sides is 3 units long, then the square of the hypotenuse is 25, and the square of the other side is 9, and if I subtract them, I get 16, which is the square of the last side.

Hagrid: Exactly, Harry! Yer a clever lad, yeh are. And yeh can use this theorem to find any side of a right-angled triangle, as long as yeh know the other two. It’s a handy trick, it is.

Harry: But, Hagrid, why do Muggles need this theorem? What do they use it for?

Hagrid: Oh, they use it for all sorts of things, Harry. Like building houses, or measuring distances, or making maps, or… or… well, I don’t really know, Harry. I’m not much of a Muggle expert, yeh see. But I’m sure it’s very useful for them. They don’t have wands, after all. They have to make do with what they have.

And that’s how New Bing wowed me with its Hagrid impression and made Pythagoras’ Theorem fun for me. I learned a lot from this conversation, and I had a blast doing it. New Bing is truly a remarkable chatbot that can do amazing things with its creative and engaging abilities.
