A note on distinct integer triplets summing to a perfect square in pairs
By Soubhik Chakraborty.
Let i, j and k be three distinct positive integers (we call it a triplet)such that the sum of every pair in the triplet is a perfect square. For example, (2, 34, 47) is a permissible triplet. Permuting the elements of a triplet among themselves, we get six triplets for each combination. The note raises the non trivial problem of finding a functional relationship between c and n where c is the number of such combination triplets such that i, j, k <=n where n is a positive integer.
