to work out a traingle side e.g. 52
is it we first times the 3 by its self to get 9 and then we times the 4 x 4 to get 16. then we take away the difference to get 52?
9 + 16 = 25
32 + 42 = 52
is this correct?

What you said was a little confusing, but here is a link to a simple statement of pythogrean's thereom:

To work out the hypoteneuse's (the side which does not end in a 90 degree angle) length, you square the first side and add it to the square of the second side. Then take the square root of the third side.
a2 + b2 = c2
32 + 42 = c2
9 + 16 = c2
c = [squ]25
c = 5
