 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Or: Numbers whose square, with its last base-8 digit dropped, is again a square. (Except maybe for the 3 initial terms whose square has only 1 digit in base 8.) See A204504 for the squares resulting from truncation of a(n)^2, and A204512 for their square roots. - M. F. Hasler, Sep 28 2014 LINKS M. F.
