COMMENTS
Since squares are 0 or 1 under both mod 3 and mod 4, for the Pythagorean equation A^2 + B^2 = C^2 to hold, each of 3 and 4 divides either of leg A or leg B, so that area A*B/2 is divisible by 3*4/2 = 6. - Lekraj Beedassy, Apr 30 2004
From Wolfdieter Lang, Jun 14 2015: (Start)
This sequence gives the area/6 (in some squared length unit) of primitive Pythagorean triangles with multiplicities modulo leg exchange. See the example.
This sequence also gives Fibonacci's congruous numbers divided by 24, with multiplicities and ordered nondecreasingly. See A258150.
(End)
It appears that this sequence gives the list of dimensions of irreducible unitary representations of the Lie group SO(5). - Antoine Bourget, Mar 30 2022

FORMULA
a(n) = A024406(n)/6.
EXAMPLE
a(6) = a(7) = 35 from the two Pythagorean triangles (A,B,C) = (21, 20, 29) and (35, 12, 37) with area 210. Triangles (20, 21, 29) and (12, 35, 37) are not counted (leg exchange). - Wolfdieter Lang, Jun 14 2015
