# Integral triangle watch

1. Puzzling over this question as well as many others....

Integral Triangle

Can you find a triangle, not right angled, each of whose sides is an integer and whose area is also an integer?
What do you notice about the title of this problem
2. 5,5,6 (two mirrored 3,4,5 triangles attached at the 4 side).
Area (6*4)/2=12.
3. 1/2absinc
4. (Original post by latentcorpse)
1/2absinc
lol, how does that help (much)?
5. remember, either or both of the height and base has to be an even integer, also the height and base have to be integers also for the area to be an integer.
