Must be a typo

There is not right-angled triangle where all 3 sides are odd

If two of the three sides are odd, then the missing side is

4

part of the well knows right-angled triangle with the smallest integer values, 3 , 4, and 5

(3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2)

If the error is in claiming it is a right triangle, then a third side of 7 is possible.
