Correction to litmus test post

Because x,y or z must be divisible by 3 and we're dealing with n=2, 3 is also a possible factor of zx and zy by my method.
But that is it, only 1,2 or 3 can be prime factors of zx or zy
for x^2 + y^2 = z^2 with the usual of x,y,z being rel. prime Naturals.
I do run on adrenaline so I tend to post hastily. But you can't beat the rush.
