A340859 a(n) is the number of isosceles integer trapezoids (up to congruence) with integer side lengths a,c,b=d with n=Max(a,b,c) and integer diagonals e=f. 2

COMMENTS

By "trapezoid" here is meant a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

Without loss of generality we assume b=d and for the parallel sides c < a. e and f are uniquely determined by e = f = sqrt((c(a^2-b^2) + a(b^2-c^2))/(a-c)). The smallest possible isosceles trapezoid has side lengths a=4, c=3, b=d=2 and diagonals e=f=4.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..65.

EXAMPLE

a(7)=2 because there are two possible trapezoids: a=5, c=3, b=d=7, e=f=8 and a=7, c=4, b=d=6, e=f=8.

MATHEMATICA

n=65; list={};

For[a=1, a<=n, a++,

For[c=1, c<a, c++,

For[d=Floor[(a-c)/2]+1, d<=n, d++,

For[b=1, b<=n, b++,

se=c(a^2-b^2)+a(d^2-c^2); sf=c(a^2-d^2)+a(b^2-c^2);

If[se<=0||sf>se, Break[]]; If[sf<=0, Continue[]];

e=Sqrt[se/(a-c)]; f=Sqrt[sf/(a-c)];
