A241079 If n is a perfect square, a(n) = 0. If n is not a perfect square, a(n) = number of final digits necessary to rule out n as a perfect square, or -1 if cannot be ruled out as a perfect square using any group of final digits. 0

COMMENTS

To define the n-digit ending of a number with fewer than n digits, insert 0's in front of it. For example, the 2-digit ending of 5 is 05.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..75.

EXAMPLE

a(24) cannot be 3 because 024 is a valid ending of a square (32^2 = 1024).
