COMMENTS

Here a primitive Heronian triangle has integer sides a,b,c with GCD(a,b,c) = 1 and integral area. The perimeter is always even. Cheney's article contains many theorems about these triangles.

EXAMPLE

12 is on this list because the triangle with sides 3, 4, 5 has integral area and perimeter 12.
