%N The number of distinct lengths of nontrivial integral cevians of an equilateral triangle of side n that divide an edge into two integral parts.

%C A cevian is a line segment which joins a vertex of a triangle with a point on the opposite side (or its extension).

%C A nontrivial cevian is one that does not coincide with a side of the triangle.

%C For an equilateral triangle of side n, the lengths of its cevians are the values of y in the solutions to x^2-y^2-n*x+n^2=0.

%e a(15) = 5 because cevians of an equilateral triangle of side 15 have length 13, 21, 35, 57 or 169.
