This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A294742 Numbers that are the sum of 5 nonzero squares in exactly 8 ways. 0

Theorem: There are no further terms. Proof (from a proof by David A. Corneth on Nov 08 2017 in A294736): The von Eitzen link states that if n > 5408 then the number of ways to write n as a sum of 5 squares is at least floor(sqrt(n - 101) / 8) = 9. For n <= 5408, terms have been verified by inspection. Hence this sequence is finite and complete.
