This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%N Denominator of the side lengths (legs in ascending order) of the easiest Pythagorean Triangle (with smallest hypotenuse) according to the congruent numbers A003273.

%C Every three fractions x < y < z satisfy the Pythagorean equation x^2 + y^2 = z^2: (A268602(3*n-2)/a(3*n-2))^2 + (A268602(3*n-1)/a(3*n-1))^2 = (A268602(3*n)/a(3*n))^2.

%C The area A = x*y/2 of these Pythagorean triangles is a congruent number: A003273(n) = (1/2) * A268602(3*n-2)/a(3*n-2) * A268602(3*n-1)/a(3*n-1)).

%e The first congruent number is 5 and the associated right triangle with the side lengths x = 3/2, y = 20/3, z = 41/6 satisfies the Pythagorean equation (3/2)^2 + (20/3)^2 = (41/6)^2 and the area of this triangle equals 1/2*3/2*20/3 = 5.

%Y Cf. A003273, A268602.
