(41) If positive integers are chosen for r and s, with r greater than> s, then the following set of equations generates a Pythagorean triple  (a, b,  c).

 

                                     

a=r2− s2          

b=2rs

         

c=r2+s2

 

Use the values r=7 and s =1 to generate a Pythagorean triple.

a = 7^2 - 1^2   =   49 - 1   = 48

b = 2(7)(1)  =  14

c = 7^2 + 1^2  =  49 + 1  = 50
