How to Use the Pythagorean Triples Calculator?

Please follow the below steps to display whether the given inputs are Pythagorean triples:

  • Step 1: Enter the height of the triangle in the given input box.
  • Step 2: Enter the base side of the triangle in the given input box.
  • Step 3: Enter the hypotenuse of the triangle in the given input box.
  • Step 4: Click on the "Check" button whether the given inputs are  Pythagorean triples.
  • Step 5: Click on the "Reset" button to check Pythagorean triplets for different values height, base, and hypotenuse values.

How to Find Pythagorean Triples?

Pythagorean triples are defined as a group of three positive whole numbers that completely satisfies the Pythagorean theorem.

Using Pythagorean theorem, (hypotenuse)2 = (base side)2 + (height)2 

Solved Example:

Given: Height = 3 units, Base Side = 4 units, Hypotenuse = 5 units. Check whether the given inputs values satisfies Pythagorean triplets. 

Solution:

Using Pythagorean theorem, (hypotenuse)2 = (base side)2 + (height)2.

(5)2 = (4)2 + (3)2

25 = 16 + 9

25 = 25

Therefore, the given input values 3,4,5 satisfies Pythagorean triplets.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to check the Pythagorean triplets.
