A "Pythagorean Plus One" triple can be defined as any three distinct integers a, b, c, such all three of these are one more than a perfect square, and also a times b equals c.
What is the lowest value of c possible?
(Good job, Richard. I should be as "dumb" as you).
If instead of "a times b = c", the puzzle had specified
"a + b = c", the smallest c is 82. The triple is (17,65,82)
