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^{2 }= leg1^{2} + leg2^{2}

hypotenuse will big the longest of the three measures

Example : First one

does 34^{2} = 16^{2} + 30^{2 }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
