%N Consider Pythagorean triples which satisfy X^2+(X+7)^2=Z^2; sequence gives increasing values of Z.

%C The sequence gives the values of Z in X^2 + Y^2 = Z^2 where Y = X + 7 and gcd(X,Y,Z)=1. The values of X are given by the formula: X(1)=5, X(2)=8, X(3)=48, X(4)=65, X(n) = 6*X(n-2) - X(n-4) + 14 for n >= 5 - see A117474. Also, Y - X = 7, which is the second term in A058529. We have Z(1)=13, Z(2)=17, Z(3)=73, Z(4)=97, Z(n)=6*Z(n-2) - Z(n-4) for n >= 5. - Andras Erszegi (erszegi.andras(AT)chello.hu), Mar 19 2006
