In AtRiA June 2012 we saw an analysis of right triangles with integer sides in arithmetic progression. In this context it is of interest to examine triangles with sides in some definite progression. In general, the least value for the constant increment/factor would give rise to an equilateral triangle; the largest value would lead to a degenerate triangle, with two sides adding up to the third side. An intermediate value would yield a right triangle. We consider separately three well known types of progression.
