can you build or generate at least 5 pythagorean triples using one of many formulas? and can u verify each one of them in the pythagorean theorem equation

  • college math -

    given any integers m > n,

    a = m^2 - n^2
    b = 2mn
    c = m^2 + n^2

    a,b,c form a Pythagorean triple

    for (m,n) = (2,1) we get (3,4,5)
    for (m,n) = (3,2) we get (5,12,13)
    and so on
