Pythagorean theorem states that in a right triangle the sides are related to each other by the equation:
A pythagorean triple is a set of integer
numbers that fulfills equation 1.
for example the set: a = 3, b = 4, c = 5.
One way to find the triple values is by using
the Euclid' s formula:
m and n are integers such that n > m.

If n ⎯ m is odd and m and n are coprime (can
not be divided by a common factor) the
result of the Euclid' s formula yields all triples
that are said to be primitive.

Because the result of multiplying a,b and c
by a common factor is also a pytagorean
triple, the more complete equation is:
Where k is an integer k = 2, 3 …. and n ⎯ m is
odd and m and n are coprime.
