COMMENTS

The definition can be generalized to define Pythagorean ktriples a<=b<c where (a^2+b^2c^2)/(cab)=k, or where for some integer k, a(a+k) + b(b+k) = c(c+k). See A198453 for more about Pythagorean ktriples.

EXAMPLE

3*2 + 3*2 = 4*3
4*3 + 6*5 = 7*6
5*4 + 10*9 = 11*10
6*5 + 7*6 = 9*8
6*5 + 15*14 = 16*15


PROG

(True BASIC)
input k
for a = (abs(k)k+4)/2 to 40
for b = a to (a^2+abs(k)*a+2)/2
let t = a*(a+k)+b*(b+k)
let c =int((k+ (k^2+4*t)^.5)/2)
if c*(c+k)=t then print a; b; c,
next b
print
next a
end
