Week 5 Discussion
Factoring
According to what I calculated, the GCF of 92 and 64 is 4. I found this answer by :
Divisor 92 divided by 4 equals 23 and 64 divided by 4 equals 16. I used the factor of numbers to help me.
92/4=23 1,2,4,23,46,92 2/24 2/12 2/6 3/3
64/4=16 1,2,4,8,76,32,64 24=2x2x2x3
Prime factors are also know as natural numbers. It means a number that is more than one and I can only divide it by one, and has no remaining numbers. It is also becomes equal, when using prime factors. I divided starting with the small number, and then I finished until it was equal, a perfect square. I used the formula x^a X x^b=x
2x2x23
2x2x2x2x3x193
The prime factor is

## Pythagorean Triples Essay

389 Words | 2 PagesResearch the topic of Pythagorean triples and write a brief report on the subject. A "Pythagorean Triple" is a set of positive integers, a, b and c that fits the rule: a2 + b2 = c2 (Pierce, 2011). The Pythagorean Theorem is a theorem that relates the lengths of the three sides of any right triangle (Stapel, 2010). If the triangle had a right angle (90°) and you made a square on each of the three sides, then the biggest square had the exact same area as the other two squares put together (Pierce, 2011). The sides of the triangle that meet at the right angle are labeled as sides (a) and sides (b).

## Pythagorean Triples Essay

1192 Words | 5 PagesA Pythagorean Triple can never be made up of all odd numbers or two even numbers and one odd number. This is true because: the square of an odd number is an odd number and the square of an even number is an even number and the sum of two even numbers is an even number and the sum of an odd number and an even number is in odd number. Therefore, if one of a and b is odd and the other is even, c would have to be odd. Similarly, if both a and b are even, c would be an even

## Pythagorean Triples Essay

536 Words | 3 PagesThere have been geometrical proofs where triangles are moved to form squares or a trapezoid in the case of President Garfield, algebraic proofs using the lengths and areas of triangles, and differential proofs using calculus. Euclid first found that a single formula could generate Pythagorean Triple. The formula he gave in Book 10 of his Elements, postulate 29 is: a=m²-n² b=2mn c=m²+n² As long as m>n, m and n have no common factors, and one of them is odd, this formula will generate unique Triples. In fact, this formula combined with multiples of the Triples that it generates will give all possible triples. Since there are an infinite number of pairs of such m and n values, this proves that there are an infinite number of such Triples.

## Pythagorean Triples Essay

1830 Words | 8 PagesIf x, y, and z are relatively prime, then the triple is called primitive” (Rowland, 2011, Theorem 1). As our assignment this week states (Bluman, 2011, p. 620, project 4), one example of a Pythagorean triple is 3, 4, and 5, because 32 + 42 = 52 which reads 9 + 16 = 25 when solved. This is the same with the numbers 5, 12, and 13, because 52 + 122 = 132 which reads 25 + 144 = 169 when solved. In this assignment, we will test one set of formulas which will generate an infinite number of Pythagorean triples, all the while showing examples of other Pythagorean triples. One set of formulas is noted by Amar Kumar Mohapatra and Nupur Prakash, of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University of Delhi, India, in their written work, A generalized formula to determine Pythagorean triples.
