Saturday Word: Corollary

cor·ol·lary [kə-ˈrä-lə-rē]:
origin: Latin; corollarium= money paid for a garland, gratuity

1. Something that naturally follows or results from another thing.
example: The corollary from a high fat diet to heart attacks proves that one should watch their cholesterol levels.

2. Mathematics; a corollary typically follows a theorem, it is something you can prove by using an established mathematical formula.
Pythagorean Theorem: if "a" and "b" are the sides of a right triangle and "c" is the hypotenuse, then c^2 = a^2 + b^2
