COMMENTS

Impossible only for 1, 2 and 4. k equals 1 when n is in A005563. k equals 2 when n is in A054000.
Let k*(k+n)= c*c, gcd(n,k,c)=1 . Then primitive triples (n,k,c) are of the form : 1) n is prime. (n,k,c)=( p, (p*p2*p+1)/4, (p*p1)/4 ) 2) n=(c/t)*(c/t) t*t, n is not a prime, t positive integer. (n,k,c)=( (c/t)*(c/t) t*t, t*t, c ) [From Ctibor O. Zizka, May 04 2009]

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 9 because 9 (7+9) = 144 = 12^2.
