    hello ! Welcome to Math help forum .

    Is that all the information given in this question ?

    If s=1 , 2+3+6=11 which is not 7

    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.)
