# Pythagorean triples

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

1. What is the rule that allows you to find ALL the Pythagorean Triples that are possible.

2. You should then find 5 different examples of Pythagorean Triples using this rule. You
must show IN DETAIL how you created the 5 examples by the using the rule. It is not
sufficient to simply list the Pythagorean triples without further ado.

3. The examples you find should be different from each other in the sense that one should
not be a multiple of another. For example: (3,4,5) is a Pythagorean Triple and if you
multiply by 5 say, this will give another Pythagorean Triple (15,20,25). In this way a single Pythagorean Triple can generate many others but these are all basically multiples of the (3,4,5) one. We are not interested in multiples of already found Pythagorean Triples
