Hint: We write the statement of the Baudhayana theorem and try to check whether it was called the Sulv theorem or not using the information given on Baudhayana theorem.

The ‘Baudhayana Sulv Sutra’ or the ‘Baudhayana Sulbasutra’ is noted for containing several early mathematical results including the Pythagoras theorem. The ‘Baudhayana Sulv Sutra’ was written in 800BC and was one of the six texts from the ‘Baudhayana Sutras’ which are vedic texts which cover daily rituals, mathematics, dharma etc. In ‘Baudhayana Sulv Sutra’ we should note that in the example from the sutra the right angles were made by ropes marked to give triads 3,4,5 and 5,12,13 as ${3^2} + {4^2} = {5^2}$ and ${5^2} + {12^2} = {13^2}$. So, we can say that the Baudhayana theorem is also called sulv theorem as it came from the sulv sutra.
