Find all Pythagorean triangles with length or height less than or equal to 20

Pythagorean triangles are right angle triangles whose sides comply with the following equation:

a * a + b * b = c * c

where c represents the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b represent the lengths of the other two sides. Find all such triangles where a, b and c are non-zero integers with a and b less than or equal to 20. Sort your results by the size of the hypotenuse. The expected answer is:

[3, 4, 5]
[6, 8, 10]
[5, 12, 13]
[9, 12, 15]
[8, 15, 17]
[12, 16, 20]
[15, 20, 25]
fantom
triangles := [,]
(1..20).each |Int a|
{
(a..20).each |Int b|
{
c := (a.pow(2) + b.pow(2)).toFloat.sqrt
if (c % c.toInt == 0.0f && !triangles.contains([b,a,c]))
triangles.add([a,b,c.toInt])
}
}
triangles.sort |Int[] x, Int[] y -> Int| { x[2]-y[2] }
echo(triangles)

Greatest Common Divisor

Find the largest positive integer that divides two given numbers without a remainder. For example, the GCD of 8 and 12 is 4.

fantom
gcd := |Int a, Int b -> Int| {
pair := [a, b].sort
while (pair.first != 0)
pair.set(1, pair.last % pair.first).swap(0, 1)
return pair.last
}
echo(gcd(12, 8)) // a>b, result == 4
echo(gcd(1029, 1071)) // a<b, result == 21
