A343891 List of primitive triples (a, b, c) for integer-sided triangles where side a is the harmonic mean of the 2 other sides b and c, i.e., 2/a = 1/b + 1/c with b < a < c. 7

COMMENTS

The triples (a, b, c) are displayed in increasing order of side a, and if sides a coincide then in increasing order of the side b.

When sides satisfy 2/a = 1/b + 1/c, or a = 2*b*c/(b+c) then a is always the middle side with b < a < c.

Equivalent relations: the heights and sines satisfy 2*h_a = h_b + h_c and 2/sin(A) = 1/sin(B) + 1/sin(C).

Inequalities between sides: a/2 < b < a < c < b*(1+sqrt(2)).

EXAMPLE

(4, 3, 6) is the first triple with 2/4 = 1/3 + 1/6 and 6-4 < 3 < 6+4.

The table begins:

   4,  3,  6;

  12, 10, 15;

  15, 12, 20;

  21, 15, 35;

  24, 21, 28;

  35, 30, 42;

  ...

MAPLE

for a from 4 to 200 do

for b from floor(a/2)+1 to a-1 do

c := a*b/(2*b-a);

if c=floor(c) and igcd(a, b, c)=1 and c-b<a then print(a, b, c); end if;

end do;

end do;
