# Ben Vitale’s Triangle puzzle

I’m on vacation right now or I’d write something much more thorough longer, but I wanted to point out a really interesting puzzle about triangles posed by Ben Vitale on twitter yesterday:

Since I never know if the link’s from twitter will be preserved in the embedding, here’s a direct link to his blog:

He gives a couple of examples and challenges the reader to find some more.  One of his examples solutions is the  triangle with sides $\sqrt{61}$, $\sqrt{153}$, and $\sqrt{388}$ which has an area of 21.
Following the hint on Ben’s blog, I played around a little bit and found that the triangle with side lengths of $\sqrt{801}$, $\sqrt{932}$, and $\sqrt{3461}$ has an area of 3.   Here’s my work, where you’ll see the Fibonacci numbers hiding in the middle of the page!
