In a right triangle with integer length sides, the hypotenuse has length 39 units. How many units is the length of the shorter leg?

We have a multiple of a 5 - 12 - 13 right triangle......multiplying each integer by 3, we get a 15 - 36 - 39 right triangle

 

So....the shorter leg has a length of  15
