Two similar triangles with integral sides have two of their sides the same.  If the third sides differ by 20141, find all of the sides.

Does "two of their sides the same" imply they are isosceles?

Or that two sides of one triangle are equal to two of the other triangle's sides?

It seems the latter, but thought I'd confirm.
