The numbers 60, 221, and 229 are the legs and hypotenuse of a right triangle. Find the multiplicative inverse to 450 modulo 3599. (Express your answer as an integer n with 0

$$450 \cdot (450)^{-1} = 1 \pmod{3599}\\ \text{something to immediately check is does 450 divide 3600?}\\ 3600=450\cdot 8 \\ 8\cdot 450 = 1 \pmod{3599}\\ 8 = (450)^{-1} \pmod{3599}$$

not sure where the triangle fits into things
