Abstract
In a WhatsApp group of Math enthusiasts, a question was posed some time ago: 13,14,15 are the sides of a triangle with rational area and side lengths that are consecutive integers. Can we find more such triangles? This question led me to ask, how many such triangles exist? Can we come up with a general formula to generate such triangles?
