 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS A trivial extension would mean appending no digits at all when n is already a square. With trivial extensions allowed, this sequence becomes A018796. LINKS N. J. A. Sloane, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..20000 FORMULA a(n) = A030667(n)^2. EXAMPLE 80 is not a perfect square, but 81 = 9^2, so a(8) = 81. Although 9 is already a square, we need to append at least one digit. However, none of 90, 91, 92, ..., 99 are squares. Then we try 900 = 30^2, so a(9) = 900.
