EXAMPLE

These appear to be the only solutions to a! + b! + c! + d! = n^2:

a b c d n

0 0 0 0 4

0 0 0 1 4

0 0 0 3 9

0 0 1 1 4

0 0 1 3 9

0 1 1 1 4

0 1 1 3 9

0 2 3 6 729

0 4 4 5 169

0 4 8 9 403225

0 5 5 5 361

1 4 8 9 403225

1 5 7 7 10201

2 2 3 3 16

2 2 6 6 1444

4 5 9 9 725904

1!+2!+3!+6! = 729 = 27^2. This shows that 4 factorials can add to a cube.

MATHEMATICA

e = 75; a = Union[ Flatten[ Table[a! + b! + c! + d!, {a, 1, e}, {b, a, e}, {c, b, e}, {d, c, e}]]]; l = Length[a]; Do[ If[ IntegerQ[ Sqrt[ a[[i]] ]], Print[ a[[i]] ]], {i, 1, l}]

PROG
