Which sets of numbers below are
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 hypotenuse2 = 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
