    8,15,17 is a Pythagorean triple because the three numbers are lengths of sides of a right triangle. You can check this by applying the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. 8^2 +15^2 = 17^2

    For the correct option, look (in this case) for a positive integer that when multiplied by each of 8, 15, 17 yields one of the choices. @carson378 Which option do you think is the correct one?
