COMMENTS

These numbers were found by exhaustive search. The sums are not unique; for n = 143, there are two representations. The Mathematica code prints n, the range of squares in the sum and the number of squares in the sum. Because the search included sums of all squares up to 2000, this sequence is complete up to 2828.

EXAMPLE

29 is in this sequence because 20^2 + 21^2 = 29^2.

Contribution from Donovan Johnson, Feb 19 2011: (Start)

For seven terms < (10^15)^(1/2), the square is a sum in two different ways:

143^2 = 7^2 + ... + 39^2 = 38^2 + ... + 48^2.

2849^2 = 294^2 + ... + 367^2 = 854^2 + ... + 864^2.

208395^2 = 2175^2 + ... + 5199^2 = 29447^2 + ... + 29496^2.

2259257^2 = 9401^2 + ... + 25273^2 = 26181^2 + ... + 32158^2.

6555549^2 = 41794^2 + ... + 58667^2 = 87466^2 + ... + 92756^2.

11818136^2 = 10898^2 + ... + 74906^2 = 29929^2 + ... + 76392^2.

19751043^2 = 39301^2 + ... + 107173^2 = 249217^2 + ... + 255345^2. (End)
