# Pythagorean Triples Calculator

The applet below makes use of the three parameter family of formulas for the pythagorean triples

a = (N^{2} - M^{2})·k,

b = 2NM·k,

c = (N^{2} + M^{2})·k.

N is supposed to be greater than M so that a is always positive. For *primitive*.

What if applet does not run? |

(There is a different, more geometric, illustration of the process of computing Pythagorean triples.)
