No.

Consider as an example hypotenuse of

$5 = \sqrt{25} = \sqrt{16 + 9} = \sqrt{4^2 + 3^2} \implies$

$5a = a \sqrt{4^2 + 3^2} = \sqrt{(4a)^2 + (3a)^2},\ a \ge 0.$

So $10 = 2 * 5 = \sqrt{100} = \sqrt{64 + 36} = \sqrt{(2 * 4)^2 + (2 * 3)^2}.$

Hypotenuse Examples : 5,10,13 ... etc. Can a computer program help in this regard? Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar Last edited by skipjack; March 19th, 2017 at 05:15 PM.

I was under the impression that this member was banned a few months ago for posting ridiculous questions. Is there no way to ban him permanently?
Can a computer program help in this regard?
