## Three right triangles-areas by twos are sides of a right triangle

Here’s a set of three triangles:

(24/5,   35/12,   337/60)
area = 7,     perimeter = 40/3

(8/3,   21/2,   65/6)
area = 14,     perimeter = 24

(12,   7/2,   25/2)
area = 21,     perimeter = 28

whose sums by twos’ are the sides   21, 28, 35   of a right triangle

(21,   28,   35)   =   7 × [3, 4, 5]

area = 294,     perimeter = 84

Find more sets of 3 triangles the sum of whose areas by twos are sides of a right triangle.
