Extract of sample

The equation holds good for sets of three integers known as triples. Since the equation is based on Pythagorean Theorem, hence the name Pythagorean triples. A well known example of such a triple is (3, 4, 5). This implies that 32+42=52
Other such examples are (5, 12, 13), (7, 24, 25), (8, 15, 17) etc. Euclid's formula proves quite helpful in generating a series of such triples. As per this formula for an arbitrary pair of positive integers m and n such that m > n, the three numbers are;

Technical indicators in technical analysis
Alligator works as a blind chicken that always find its corns. These lines that form Alligators Jaw, Teeth and Lips show an interaction of different time periods on the chart. When these three lines join together it means the Alligator is going to sleep or already asleep. As it sleeps it gets hungrier, the longer the sleep the more hungrily it becomes. When it wakes there will be a bullish run and after having a quite full of meal it loses its interest to food/price. "This is the time to fix profit" (Bill Williams, 2006).

Fractal Geometry
In colloquial speech fractal is a shape which is self-similar or recursively constructed. It means that such shape is similar at all levels of magnification and therefore it is sometimes called "infinitely complex". In the sphere of mathematic the word "fractal" means geometric object "that satisfies a specific technical condition, namely having a Hausdoff dimension greater than its topological dimension". (26) The simplest fractal is known to be Cantor Bar Set which was called after German famous mathematician. It is necessary to admit that fractals refer not only to the realm of geometry and…
