Pythagorean Triple

Part 1:

The Pythagorean theorem states that the two legs are both ( a & b ) and the hypotenous is ( c ). The pythagorean triple is when you have three oerfect squares and you add two of the perfect squares ( the legs a & b ) together and then when you add them together you get another perfect square.

a squared + b squared = c squared !!
