## estudier 3 years ago All Pythagorean triples where area = perimeter (numerically)?

1. estudier

More algebra...:-)

5,12,13 using trial and error method ^^

3. estudier

That's one.....

4. CheetahBooks1

what do you mean?

5. estudier

By what?

one more: 6,8,10

7. estudier

That's two....

hehe...

ok, general form tripel pythagorean number is : a=x b=(x^2-1)/2 c=(x^2+1)/2 with a<b<c (a,b,c are sides of a right-triangle) perimeter = area x + (x^2-1)/2 + (x^2+1)/2 = x(x^2-1)/2, simplify it we get : x^3 - 4x^2 - 5x =0 x(x^2 - 4x - 5) = 0 x(x-5)(x+1)=0 x=5 satifisfy it (so, a=5, b=12, c=13) with same way, for a=2x b=x^2-1 c=x^2+1 perimeter = area 2x+x^2-1+x^2+1 = 2x(x^2-1)/2, simplify it we get : x^3 - 2x^2 - 3x = 0 x(x^2 - 2x - 3) =0 x(x-3)(x+1)=0 x=3 satifisfy it (so, a=6, b=8, c=10) i have done for a=kx b=k(x^2-1) c=k(x^2+1) with k=3,4,5,6... there are x satisfy it but the result just reflication of on... and its rest not satisfy for x which make for a,b,c integer number

so, just 2 triple only...

3,4,5 is a triple, too!

but, its area not equal its perimeter...

13. estudier

Yes, good enough:-)

thanks...

you can have an easier algebra by eliminating z from x^2+y^2=z^2 and xy/2 = x + y +z leads to xy -4x -4y +8 = 0 -> (x-4)(y-4) = 8 etc.
