 A288854 The unique longest sequence of squares where each number (after the first) is obtained by prefixing a single digit to its predecessor. 0

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS This chain with five squares is the longest which exists in this context, there is no such sequence of length >= 6. There are also only four chains of maximal length 4 with: -> 25, 225, 1225, 81225. These four squares are the first terms of A061839. -> 25, 225, 4225, 34225. -> 25, 225, 7225, 27225. These four squares are the first terms of A191486. -> 25, 625, 5625, 15625. There are also only three chains of maximal length 3 with: -> 3025, 93025, 893025. -> 30625, 330625, 3330625. -> 50625, 950625, 4950625. See Crux Mathematicorum links. LINKS L.
