Introduction A triple of positive integers (a, b, c) is a Pythagorean triple if, and only if, a + b = c. Positive integers a and b will also be the lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle and integer c will be the length of the hypotenuse. Let d equal the length of the segment that is perpendicular to the hypotenuse and that passes through the vertex of the right angle. It can then be proved that a~ + b' = d . We shall call the triple (a, b, d) an upside-down Pythagorean triple. The… Expand
