People seem to be wrong... | Comment 17 of 20 |
A lot of people who've posted comments seem to believe that 2, 5 and 10 is the answer. While 2*5 does equal 10 this isn't a pythagorean triple as requested in the puzzle, as 4 + 25 != 100. I don't have an answer, and I'd probably agree with the person who said this is actually impossible, but it definatly isn't 2, 5 and 10.
