a. determine three other right triangles wtih side lengths in arithmetic sequence.

b.let the sides of a right triangle be a, a+d,a+2d units long. Use the pythagorean theorem to determine a relationship between a and d.

c. based on the results in part b, mae a general statement about all right triangles whose sides form an airthmetic sequence.

so lost, someone please help

(a) HINT: there are infinite trianles similar to 3, 4, 5

(b) a = a

b = a + d

c = a + 2d

substitute these values into the pythagoren theorem and see if you can find any relationships

(c)intuitive

a, like 7,8,9 10,11,12 13,14,15

b, a^4+2ad+d^2=2d^4

c, what is intuitive?

thank you so much for explaining.,...trying to see if im on the right track

wait...a^a=2ad....but i still don't understand what that in turn means about c
