Equilateral Triangle (Posted on 2004-06-20) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Can an equilateral triangle have vertices at integral lattice points?

Integral lattice points are such points as (101, 254) or (3453, 12), but not points such as (123.4, 1) or (√2, 5)

If you can't find a solution in the 2D Cartesian plane, can you find one in a 3 (or more) dimensional space?
