Main Question or Discussion Point
Where they aware of 3,4 and 5; 5, 12 and 13?
Thanks. Much appreciated.I would say yes based on the clay table of pythag triplets shown in this presentation:
Check at slides 33-35 or thereabouts. It's a pretty cool presentation.
Thanks for this information. Very relevant to my question.From Wikipedia:
The cuneiform Plimpton 322 contains 15 different Pythagorean triples, e. g. ##(56,90,106)\, , \, (119,120,169)\, , \, (12709, 13500, 18541)##, which suggests that more than ##3,500## years ago a method of calculating such triples was already known.
