Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think they're the only 3 consecutive numbers that form a Pythagorean triple. So if you scale the triangle up (like 9, 12, 15) or down (like 0.30.40.5) you'll have three numbers that are in an arithmetic progression/sequence

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, so 1 can't be the length of a side, so x = 3, x+ 1 = 4, and x + 2 = 5.
