This is not well worded. I take 'small sides' (plural) to mean the two
smaller, non-hypotenuse sides (which are necessarily shorter than the
hypotenuse). So the possible pairs of values i,j, where i is the shorter
of the two, have

Again, not well worded; I believe this is meant to be n==200, except
that the program should take n as a parameter and then give it value
200, so that the could work if n were given some other value.
So the possible pairs of values i,j, where i is the shorter of the two,
have j <= n (==200) and i <= j.
