## Number of Pythagorean Triples and Expansion of Euclid's Formula

**Authors:** Aryan Phadke

Set of Pythagorean triple consists of three values such that they comprise the three sides of a right angled triangle. Euclid gave a formula to find Pythagorean Triples for any given number. Motive of this paper is to find number of possible Pythagorean Triples for a given number. I have been able to provide a different proof for Euclid’s formula, as well as find the number of triples for any given number. Euclid’s formula is altered a little and is expanded with a variable ‘x’. When ‘x’ follows the conditions mentioned the result is always a Pythagorean Triple.
