Homework Help: Math

Posted by Kevin on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 6:24am.

1. Start with an odd number, e.g. 3. Then the square of 3 can be expressed as the sum of two consecutive numbers, i.e. 32 = 9 = 4 + 5. Therefore the Pythagorean Triples are {3, 4, 5} since 32 + 42 = 52. Generate another set of Pythagorean Triples starting with the next odd number 5 and verify that it works.
