COMMENTS

Equivalently, solutions n to a*(b+1)^2 = b*n with a > b >= 2.
The general rule to obtain such a partition is to start with any number b > 1 and one of its multiples a = k*b (k > 1 and a < n) and let s = ab, t = a+b, u = a/b and v = a*b.

EXAMPLE

18 = 2+6+2+8; for k=2 we have 2+2 = 62 = 2*2 = 8/2 = 4, hence 18 is a term.
45 = 8+12+5+20; for k=2 we have 8+2 = 122 = 5*2 = 20/2 = 10, hence 45 is a term.
