Total Area


A Pythagorean triangle is a right-angled triangle where every side length is a positive integer. To find the area of a Pythagorean triangle, you find half the product of the smallest two side lengths. To find the perimeter of a Pythagorean triangle, you find the sum of all the side lengths. For example, the Pythagorean triangle of side lengths 5, 12 and 13 has an area of 30 and a perimeter of 30. This is an A/P ratio of 1. Find the total area of every Pythagorean triangle which has a A/P ratio of 2.
