hi
You are right.
if the 3 sides are given to be integers in St2 The hypotenuse of ΔABC is 4 units longer than the shorter leg. , it would be sufficient to satisfy.
only (6,8,10) is satisfying it .
But if St2 had been
sides are integers and Hypotenuse is 4 units more than one of the legs. then it would NOT be sufficient.
both (6,8,10) and (12, 16, 20) ( even more such triplets are there )satisfy it.

Hello
GMATBusters,
I was wondering whether you could help me on this one,
IF statement 2 said that the 3 sides must have an integer value , would then statement 2 be sufficient too? If yes how could we prove that there is only one triplet that fulfils the statement?
Is there a way to prove that only 6-8-10 satisfies it? ( I'm curious because I would start testing numbers and it would take a very long time )
