Which sets of numbers below are
Pythagorean triples?
How did you decide?
a) 16, 30, 34
b) 6, 8, 9
c) 15, 39, 36
d) 16, 65, 63
e) 9, 30, 35
f) 40, 42, 58

 I'm not sure what the answer to d is since I don't know what numbers they're all divisible by which is the method I have been using to find the answers

I won't tell you which ones....but I WILL tell you how to figure which ones are

 

Pyhtagorean theorem says   hypotenuse= leg12  + leg22

    hypotenuse will big the longest of the three measures

Example :    First one

     does     342  =  162  + 302         I do not know....but if it does...it is a Pythag triple !

                                                           Now....YOU have to do that for all of the choices !     Tedious....but it makes it memorable
