The numbers 20, 99, and 101 form a Pythagorean triple. A right triangle has heights 20, 99, and x where x is the shortest height. What is x?

This is not possible in a right triangle.... the shorter side + the 20 side do not add up to more than 99 ....necessary to meet the triangle side length rule. .
