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).
If a, b and c form a Pythagorean ktriple, then na, nb and nc form a Pythagorean nktriple.
A triangle is defined to be a Pythagorean ktriangle if its sides form a Pythagorean ktriple.
If a, b and c are the sides of a Pythagorean ktriangle ABC with a<=b<c, then cos(C) = k/(a+b+c+k) which proves that such triangles must be obtuse when k>0 and acute when k<0. When k=0, the triangles are Pythagorean, as in the Beiler reference and Ron Knottās link. For all k, the area of a Pythagorean ktriangle ABC with a<=b<c equals sqrt((2ab)^2(k(a+bc))^2))/4.

EXAMPLE

2*5 + 3*6 = 4*7
3*6 + 7*10 = 8*11
4*7 +12*15 = 13*16
5*8 + 18*21 = 19*22
6*9 = 6*9 = 9*12
6*9 = 11*14 = 13*16

(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
