# What isa pythagorean triples?

That refers to any solution of the equation a2 + b2 = c2, where a, b, and c are positive integers. For example, 3, 4, 5; or 5, 12, 13.

### What is the length of side c in right triangle if side a is 4cm and side b is 3cm?

From the Pythagorean Theorem: c^2 = a^2 + b^2. So, c = âˆš(a^2 + b^2) substitute the given values: c = âˆš(4^2 + 3^2) c = âˆš(16 + 9) c = âˆš25 c = 5 (since the length is always positive) One of the Pythagorean triples is 3,4,5. So, if you know all the Pythagorean triples, you don't need to do the computations above. The Pythagorean triple: A set of three positive integers a, b…

### How do you find pythagorean triples?

You have your basic 3-4-5, 5-12-13, and 8-15-17 Pythagorean Triples which are just patterns that have been discovered by mathematicians along the ages, but here is a Wikipedia link if you want more depth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formulas_for_generating_Pythagorean_triples Also, here is a good link for a list of a lot of triples, plus cool graphics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagorean_triple

### What are Pythagorean Triples?

A Pythagorean Triple is a set of three numbers that are related like this: (The square of one of them) = (the square of another one) + ( the square of the third one) If three numbers are related that way, then they can be the lengths of the sides of a right triangle. If they're not, then they can't. They're called a "Pythagorean Triple" because the ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras was the one who…
