This open investigation follows on from the problem Generating Triples. It can be taken to many levels of complexity.

The well-known Pythagorean Triple ${3,4,5}$ has the property that the two smaller numbers differ by 1.
 
Can you find any more Pythagorean Triples where the two smaller numbers differ by 1? Investigate your findings.
