Ex 6.2, 2 Write a Pythagorean triplet whose one member is. (iii) 16We know 2m, ๐‘š^2โˆ’1 and ๐‘š^2+1 form a Pythagorean triplet. Given, One member of the triplet = 16. Let 2m = 16 2m = 16 m = 16/2 m = 8 Let ๐’Ž^๐Ÿโˆ’๐Ÿ" = 16" ๐‘š^2 = 16 + 1 ๐‘š^2 = 17 Since, 17 is not a square number, โˆด ๐‘š^2โˆ’1 โ‰  16 It is not possible. Let ๐’Ž^๐Ÿโˆ’๐Ÿ" = 16" ๐‘š^2 = 16 + 1 ๐‘š^2 = 17 Since, 17 is not a square number, โˆด ๐‘š^2โˆ’1 โ‰  16 It is not possible. Therefore, m = 8 Finding Triplets for m = 8 1st number = 2m 2nd number = ๐‘š^2โˆ’1 3rd number = ๐‘š^2+1 โˆด The required triplet is 16, 63, 65
