Escher Configurations on Triangles

The aim of this project is to investigate the existence of Escher solutions. Specific questions that will be considered initially include:

(1) Is it true that the triples (2,2,r) (resp. (2,3,r)) have no Escher solution for all primes r ≥ 3 (resp. ≥ 7)?
(2) Is it true that for all prime p > 2, the triple (p, q, q) has no Escher solution for q a sufficiently large prime?
(3) Is the smallest element of a triple having no Escher solution always prime?
