COMMENTS

Side lengths where both triangular numbers are the same (A053141) are not included. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 11 2018

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 18, since the pair of triangular numbers 171 = 18*(18+1)/2 and 105 = 14*(14+1)/2 produce the sum 276 = 23*(23+1)/2 and the difference 66 = 11*(11+1)/2 which are both triangular numbers.

PROG

(PARI) lista(nn) = {v = vector(nn, n, n*(n+1)/2); for (n=2, nn, for (k=1, n-1, if (ispolygonal(v[n]+v[k], 3) && ispolygonal(v[n]-v[k], 3), print1(n, ", ")); ); ); } \\ Michel Marcus, Jan 08 2015
