COMMENTS

1.Smallest triangular number T(k) (other than the trivial adjacent ones) such that T(n) + T(k) is a square. ( T(n-1) and T(n+1) are trivial triangular numbers such that T(n) +T(n-1) and T(n) + T(n+1) both are squares.) 0+1 = 1, 1+15 = 16, 3+ 78= 81, 6 + 190 = 196 etc. 2. (7n+5)-th triangular number. - Amarnath Murthy, Jun 20 2003
