Problem 249. Project Euler: Problem 9, Pythagorean numbers
The description should be 9 + 16 = 5^2 and not 9+16 = 2^5 ?
Thanks Aurelien! Fixed it.
This is an interesting problem. Apparently everyone (including me) had to solve it by a basic brute force method with oly very slight variations. I did manage to use my MATLAB copy to use solve from the symbolic toolbox to get the answers, but the version of MATLAB on which Cody runs doesn't have access to a license for the symbolic toolbox.
@ Doug Hall, I have solved all the problems in the series. However, I have not received the badge and the associated scores on completion of the series. Can you please help me with this?
Wow, all the triangles are in the ratio of 8:15:17? Pretty huge oversight.
