    I assume those are the measurements for a right triangle?

    408^2 + 306^2 = 525^2 .... see if this is a true statement :)

    I could tell by the last digits.. 8^2 + 6^2 = 5^2 64 + 36 = 25 100 = 25... the last digits 0 and 5 are not the same, so it wont fly no matter how large the numbers are...
