**Reiny**, Sunday, July 25, 2010 at 12:52pmn^2-m^2, 2mn , n^2 + m^2 , where n > m will always produce a Pythagorean triple.

If n and m are also relatively prime, that is they have no common factor between them, then that triple will also be unique.

e.g. n= 12, m=7

12^2-7^2 = 144 - 49 = 95

2(12)(7) = 168

12^2 + 7^2 = 144 + 49 = 193

95, 168, and 193 are a PT , and are not a multiple of any other PT.
