A Generalized Formula to Determine Pythagorean Triples
Mohapatra, Amar Kumar; Prakash, Nupur
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n1 p131-135 Jan 2010
This note proposes a unique solutions to find out the value of x, y and z which satisfies the equation x[superscript 2] + y[superscript 2] = z[superscript 2]. The uniqueness of the proposed formulae is to find the total number of y's and z's at a given value of x. The value of y and z can be calculated by factoring x[superscript 2] or (x/2)[superscript 2]. In addition to this, the proposed solution guarantees the integral value of y and z for the given integral value of x.
