Right triangle PQR is to be constructed in the xy-plane so that the right angle is at P and PR is parallel to the x-axis. The x- and y-coordinates of P, Q, and R are to be integers that satisfy the inequalities -4 =< x =< 5 and 6 =< y =< 16. How many different triangles with these properties could be constructed?

This is a :stab Q. My guess is

(9*10)*(10*11) --> Assuming there is no restriction that x co-ordinate of P must be > x co-ordinate of Q.

For each base and height chosen, there are (5+4)*(16-6) = 9*10 triangles possible.

Also there are:
1) 11 bases (PR) and to choose from (y=6 through y = 16, both included).
2) 10 heights (QR) to choose from (x=-4 through x = 5, both included)

Total = 9*10*10*11?

Absolutely correct :wink:

Answer is 9900, which you have given above.

Great Solution. :cool
