Abstract
At the start we recall the definition: a Pythagorean triple is a triple (a, b, c) of positive integers such that a^2 + b^2 = c^2. The triple is called ‘primitive’ if a, b, c have no common divisor exceeding 1; we call such a triple a ‘Primitive Pythagorean Triple’ (PPT for short). For example, (5, 12, 13) is a PPT, while (6, 8, 10) is a Pythagorean triple which is not a PPT.
