Find a pair of triangles, one is a right triangle and one is an isosceles triangle, subject to the following conditions:
1) Both triangles have integer sides.
2) Both triangles have the same perimeter
3) Both triangles have the same integer area.

I've made an error in reasoning. The r I referred to doesn't have to be a whole number.
My reasoning that the bases of the triangles must in the reciprocal proportion to the heights is valid. Unfortunately the search as I did it is much harder.
EDIT: as shown by Steve Herman, the ratio of the bases is 44/45.
