Determine all possible triplets of nonzero perfect squares
(A, B, C) that satisfy this equation:
1 2 3 2
--- + --- + --- = ---
A B C 3
Prove that there are no others.

None of A, B or C can be 1, since the LHS would be greater than 2/3.
For the same reason, C can't be 4.
When C = 9, we find a solution when A = B = 9.
You err in asserting that there's no need to check values bigger than 9. You haven't proven that there aren't other solutions where A = 4 or B = 4.
