EXAMPLE

a(26) = 1 since 26 = 2^4 + 2*0^2 + 4*5/2.

a(32) = 1 since 32 = 0^4 + 2*4^2 + 0*1/2.

a(41) = 1 since 41 = 1^4 + 2*3^2 + p_5(4), where p_5(n) denotes the pentagonal number n*(3*n-1)/2.

a(196) = 1 since 196 = 1^4 + 2*5^2 + p_5(10).

a(3524) = 1 since 3524 = 0^4 + 2*22^2 + 71*72/2.

a(3647) = 1 since 3647 = 0^4 + 2*34^2 + p_5(30).

a(6047) = 1 since 6047 = 5^4 + 2*39^2 + p_5(40).

a(6107) = 1 since 6107 = 0^4 + 2*1^2 + 110*111/2.

a(11462) = 1 since 11462 = 9^4 + 2*5^2 + 98*99/2.

a(13427) = 1 since 13427 = 7^4 + 2*0^2 + 148*149/2.

a(14717) = 1 since 14717 = 8^4 + 2*72^2 + 22*23/2.

a(15002) = 1 since 15002 = 0^4 + 2*86^2 + 20*21/2.

a(17132) = 1 since 17132 = 3^4 + 2*30^2 + p_5(101).

a(20462) = 1 since 20462 = 0^4 + 2*26^2 + 195*196/2.

a(30082) = 1 since 30082 = 11^4 + 2*63^2 + 122*123/2.

a(35750) = 1 since 35750 = 0^4 + 2*44^2 + 252*253/2.
