Let ABC be a triangle with integral side lengths such that angle A=3 * angle B. Find the minimum value of its perimeter.
I decided to see what would happen if sin(B)=3/5.
by the law of sines
and the minimum integer solution to this is
a=195, b=125, c=112
for a perimeter of 432.
I don't know if this is a minimum. I haven't even tried sin(B)=4/5.
