%N a(n) = n*(n+10).

%C These are the only positive integer values of t for which the Binet-de Moivre formula for the recurrence b(n) = 10*b(n-1)+t*b(n-2) with b(0)=0 and b(1)=1 has a root which is a square. In particular, sqrt(10^2+4*t) is a positive integer since 10^2+4*t = 10^2+4*a(m) = (2*m+10)^2. Thus the characteristic roots are r1=10+m and r2 = -m. - _Felix P. Muga II_, Mar 28 2014
