Hi Friends,

I have come up a generic solution for finding the pair of squares whose sum makes another square(i.e. pythogorous theorem) other than multples of 3 and 4

If x+y = z^2, z being an odd number other than 1 then

x^2+z^2=y^2

eg.

12+13=25=5^2

and

12^2+5^2= 13^2

Isn't this interesting

Please share your views

Regards,
Prasad
