Abstract

In Parts I, II and III of this series of articles we identified triples of consecutive positive integers with striking geometrical properties; for each triple, the triangle with the three integers as its sides has some special geometrical property. The triples ( 3 , 4 , 5 ) , ( 4 , 5 , 6 ) and ( 2 , 3 , 4 ) all turned out to be special in this sense.
