The primitive areas are 168, 338, 432, 600, 768, 13608, 14280, 20280, 27216, ...

The non-primitive areas 16*a(n) are in the sequence because if R is the circumradius corresponding to a(n), then 4*R is the circumradius corresponding to 16*a(n).

Each circumradius belongs to the sequence {25, 100, 169, 225, 289, 400, 625, 676, ...}, and it seems that this last sequence is A198385 (second of a triple of squares in arithmetic progression).

The following table gives the first values (A, R, a, b, c) where A is the integer area, R the radius of the circumcircle, and a, b, c are the integer sides of the triangle.

FORMULA

Area A = sqrt(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)) with s = (a+b+c)/2 (Heron's formula);

Circumradius R = a*b*c/4A.

EXAMPLE

168 is in the sequence because the area of the triangle (14, 30, 40) is given by Heron's formula A = sqrt(42*(42-14)*(42-30)*(42-40))= 168 where the number 42 is the semiperimeter, and the circumcircle is given by R = a*b*c/(4*A) = 14*30*40/(4*168) = 25, which is a square.

MATHEMATICA

nn = 1000; lst = {}; Do[s = (a + b + c)/2; If[IntegerQ[s], area2 = s (s - a) (s - b) (s - c); If[0 < area2 && IntegerQ[Sqrt[area2]] && IntegerQ[Sqrt[a*b*c/(4*Sqrt[area2])]], AppendTo[lst, Sqrt[area2]]]], {a, nn}, {b, a}, {c, b}]; Union[lst]
