How would you define "congruent" ?
Congruent means that two objects are the exact same size and the exact same shape. This means that If two objects are congruent, then their angle measurements and side measurements will be exactly the same.
These are only some of the pythagorean triples. There are many more.
Any multiples of these sets are also pythagorean triples.
For example: (6,8,10) is a multiple of (3,4,5). Both are pythagorean triples
