   property of a rational right triangle
Posted:
Apr 7, 2011 8:38 PM


Let ABC be a right triangle such that all the sides and the area are integers and the angle C is pi/2. Therefore, ABC is a rational right triangle.
Conjecture: One of the remaining two angles say A must be rational. That is A = r.pi where r = is rational such that 0 < r < 1/2.
Any comment upon the correctness of the conjecture will be appreciated. Any relevant reference will be very helpful.
