I think I am very close to finishing this question but am not quite there...
Question: A Pythagorean triple (a, b, c) consists of positive integers a, b and c satisfying a < b < c and . They correspond to right angles triangles whose sides have whole-number lengths. The simplest and most well known example is (3, 4, 5).
Show that if A is any 2 x 2 matrix and P is any matrix with properties B and C, then also has properties B and C.
The properties A-D (referred to above) are...
A: all entries of P are positive integers
B: P is symmetric (This means ).
C: det P =0
D: for some integer k> ( is the i, j-th entry of P)
