Project Euler – Pythagorean Triplet

While working on another blog post about the lattice path problem my hard drive suffered from a terminal meltdown. Sadly all work lost.

Tomorrow I will take my iMac to my local Apple Store’s Genius Bar.

Meanwhile, while watching Zoolander on TV (what a great movie by the way), I took a quick shot at another Project Euler problem about Pythagorean triplets.

I did some research about constructing Pythagorean triplets, but in the end I had to realize that a very simple brute force solution exists.

There might be better way to do this. But I keep this for another blog post. Typing on my laptop is way less fun and Hansel requires my attention anyway.
