Thanks! This is exactly the type of explanation I was looking for. The specific problem I was working on involves finding the triplet for which $a + b + c = 1000$, but seeing this pattern, I wasn't sure what I was looking at and was curious. For someone with only a high-school level mathematics education but lots of programming experience, this was a great explanation.

@ThomasAndrews Thanks, I just had that thought a minute ago. Is there a name or some sort of basis for this technique?
