Assuming we have solved the problems from one end, we are now at Problem 75 of Project Euler which should unlock the 75 problem achievement as well as the Pythagorean Triplet achievement. The problem description reads

**It turns out that 12 cm is the smallest length of wire that can be bent to form an integer sided right angle triangle in exactly one way, but there are many more examples.**

**12 cm: (3,4,5)**

** 24 cm: (6,8,10)**

** 30 cm: (5,12,13)**

** 36 cm: (9,12,15)**

** 40 cm: (8,15,17)**

** 48 cm: (12,16,20)**

**In contrast, some lengths of wire, like 20 cm, cannot be bent to form an integer sided right angle triangle, and other lengths allow more than one solution to be found; for example, using 120 cm it is possible to form exactly three different integer sided right angle triangles.**

**120 cm: (30,40,50), (20,48,52), (24,45,51)**

**Given that L is the length of the wire, for how many values of L ≤ 1,500,000 can exactly one integer sided right angle triangle be formed?**

**Note: This problem has been changed recently, please check that you are using the right parameters.**

I have already noted that we should unlock the Pythagorean triplet achievement, and that is for a reason. In order to get a good solution we need to revisit the theory we used in Problem 9 about Pythagorean triples. Continue reading →
