COMMENTS

An equivalent form is (x - y)^2*(x + y), or d^2*(d + 2y), where d = x - y > 0 and y > 0. See also A321499.

EXAMPLE

   45 = (4 - 1)*(4^2 - 1^2) = (23 - 22)*(23^2 - 22^2),

   63 = (5 - 2)*(5^2 - 2^2) = (32 - 31)*(32^2 - 31^2),

   81 = (6 - 3)*(6^2 - 3^2) = (41 - 40)*(41^2 - 40^2),

   96 = (5 - 1)*(5^2 - 1^2) = (13 - 11)*(13^2 - 11^2),

   99 = (7 - 4)*(7^2 - 4^2) = (50 - 49)*(50^2 - 49^2),

  117 = (8 - 5)*(8^2 - 5^2) = (59 - 58)*(59^2 - 58^2).
