## Pythagorean triples in code c, help!

I need to create a code in c fits the description below, I have no idea what to do, if someone could possibly write a code or explain to me what I could do that would be appreciated!

Description

A positive integer triple (a, b, c) with 0 < a < b < c and a^2 + b^2 = c^2

is called a Pythagorean triple. Write a

program in C which reads an integer N and prints

1. the total number of Pythagorean triples (a, b, c) with c < N,

2. every such Pythagorean triple, and

3. the triple that has the largest value of c.

Hint: you can enumerate all possible pairs (a, b) with 0 < a < b < N and check if they satisfy a

2+b

2 < N2

.

Example Input/Output

• Enter a positive integer: [3]

There is no Pythagorean triple in this range.

• Enter a positive integer: [15]

There are 3 Pythagorean triples in this range:

(3, 4, 5)

(5, 12, 13)

(6, 8, 10)

The triple with the largest value of c is (5, 12, 13).

• Enter a positive integer: [6]

There are 1 Pythagorean triples in this range:

(3, 4, 5)

The triple with the largest value of c is (3, 4, 5).
