sorry i should have been a bit clearer.

I am wanting to know why:

2^2+3^2+6^2=7^2

(the ^2 represents squared).

I know that the product of any two consecutive numbers squared plus 1 is the answer.

To put this in to practice:

3^2+4^2+12^2=13^2

(my consecutive numbers are 3 and 4 with a product of 12- add one to equal 13 and all of these numbers are squared.)
