A Pythagorean Triple is when 3 numbers fit perfectly in the pythagorean theorem equation. For example, 3, 4, 5 is a pythagorean triple because 3 squared plus 4 squared actually equals 5 squared. On the other hand, 6, 8, and 12 are not pythagorean triples because 6 squared plus 8 squared DOES NOT equal 12 squared (it equals 10 squared instead). So it doesn't work. Many sets of numbers don't work, but we can check to see if they work by plugging them into our pythagorean theorem equation. Write the famous pythagorean theorem equation below.
