converting a recursive formula into a non-recursive formula.

I proceeded using infinite descent. Let $ N =a_na_{n-1}a_{n-2}\ldots\ldots a_2a_1a_0$ be the decimal representation of the number. Then either $N$ ends in an even number of zeroes or $a_0=6$

Now all squares are $\equiv 0 \text{ or } 1 \bmod 4 $. But if $N$ ends in $06\text{ or }66 $, then $N\equiv 2 \bmod 4 $. Thus $ N $ does not end in $6$.

If $N$ ends in an even number of zeroes then, then $ N=10^{2n}\cdot N’$.

- mutliplicative inverse
- $n+1$ is a divisor of $\binom{2n} {n}$
- There does not exist a polynomial $p(x)$ with integer coefficients which gives a prime number $\forall x\in \mathbb{Z}$
- If $a|bc$ and $\gcd(a,b) = 1$, then $a|c$
- Liouville function and perfect square
- What five odd integers have a sum of $30$?

Applying the same argument to $ N’$ we commence an infinite descent.

Is the proof correct ? Any shorter proofs ?

- When is there an $m$ that divides $u^{an+b}+v^{cn+d}$ for all $n$

To make the last part of the argument of @lsp explict, if a square $x^2$ ends in $6$, then the last two decimal digits of $x$ are

- either $a4$, and then

$$

x^2 \equiv (a \cdot 10 + 4)^2 \equiv a \cdot 80 + 16 \pmod{100},

$$ - or $a6$, and then

$$

x^2 \equiv (a \cdot 10 + 6)^2 \equiv a \cdot 120 + 36 \pmod{100}.

$$

In both cases the last-but-one digit is indeed odd.

If $N=10^{2n}.P$ , then $10^{2n}$ is already a perfect square. We just need to check if $P$ is a square.

Since it can either end with ‘$06$’ or ‘$66$’ this is never a perfect square as perfect squares ending with ‘$6$’ should always have an ODD number in ten’s place.

Let $a_1a_2a_3…00$ be a square number with $2k$ number of zeroes at the end, and the number is just made of $0’s$ and $6’s$

Let us suppose that’s a square, $x^2=a_1a_2a_3…00$

$x^2=a_1a_2…00=a_1a_3x_4..a_m.10^{2k}$

Which means $a_1a_3a_4..a_m$ is also a square, since $a_{m-1}a_m=06$ or $66$.

$a_1a_2..a_m= 2\mod 4$.

Contradiction. Therefore, there’s no such square! And yeah. Your argument is right. ðŸ™‚
