Question

Subject: Math Across the Ages

Hello this isn’t an advanced match course but I chose it since it doesn’t have a math subject for it. But the topic is on math during the Greek era of math.

I was hoping if you could explain how to get 3.8 or both 3.8 and 3.9. It is on Pythagorean triples.

Thank you.
