Solution Patterns Predicting Pythagorean Triples
Ezenweani, Ugwunna Louis
Education, v133 n4 p444-447 Sum 2013
Pythagoras Theorem is an old mathematical treatise that has traversed the school curricula from secondary to tertiary levels. The patterns it produced are quite interesting that many researchers have tried to generate a kind of predictive approach to identifying triples. Two attempts, namely Diophantine equation and Brahmagupta trapezium presented good approaches for this work. They yielded another pattern for predicting Pythagorean triples involving prime numbers and even numbers depending on the first entries (3, 4, 5). These are given for predicting the four categories of Pythagorean triples using first entry as prime number; second, even number greater, than 4; third, even greater than 10 and forth, even number greater than 18.
