Generating Near-Isosceles Pythagorean Triples
The identity is of the form of a Pythagorean triple , with , . [more]
Since , this evidently represents a near-isosceles right triangle.
This Demonstration shows this result for selected values of from 1 to 20.[less]
A somewhat similar formula for triples, known to Pythagoras and the Babylonians, is given by
