Problem 9 - Special Pythagorean triplet

A Pythagorean triplet is a set of three natural numbers, a < b < c, for which,

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

For example, 3^2 + 4^2 = 9 + 16 = 25 = 5^2.

There exists exactly one Pythagorean triplet for which a + b + c = 1000.

Find the product abc.

Find the product abc.

$a=200 $a2=40,000

$b=375 $b2=140,625

$c=425 $c2=180,625

abc = 31,875,000

$b=375 $b2=140,625

$c=425 $c2=180,625

abc = 31,875,000
