A Pythagorean triple is an ordered triple of positive integers(a,b,c) such that a^2+B^2=c^2.Find
the number of the Pythagorean triples such that all the numbers a,b and c are prime?

  • math - ,

    for any natural numbers m and n where m and n are relatively prime
    2mn, m^2-n^2 and m^2 + n^2 will form a Pythagorean triple.

    since the smallest triple is 3,4,5,
    one of the numbers (the 2mn) will always be even.

    So there are no such Pythagorean triples where all 3 are primes.
