like I said, Pythagorean triplets remain constant if you multiply or divide.
so divide them all by 4
All of the options are larger than 12 and 16, so are the hypotenuse of the triangle. So square each of the options, and add together the squares of 12 and 16 and see which options match
do you understand how to solve it?
