Find the lowest n (Posted on 2015-06-22) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Are there distinct positive integers a,b,n for which:
1/n = 1/a^2+1/b^2,
?

If so, find the triplet with lowest n.

A few other n | Comment 2 of 4 |
20 = (1+4)*1*4

   1/20 = 1/5^2 + 1/10^2

Some other n that work include

90 = (1+9)*1*9

    1/90 = 1/10^2 + 1/30^2

272 = (1+16)*1*16

   1/272 = 1/17^2 + 1/68^2

(1+a^2)*a^2

   1/(a^2 +a^4) = 1/(1+a^2)^2 + 1/(a+a^3)^2
