    This may be me being stupid but i think i might have stumbled on a formula,
    its pretty useless but i just want to know if anyone has discovered it before or if anyone could help me improve it the formula is:

    n-50 = g

    100g+g(squared) + 2500 = n(squared)

    as i said its pretty useless but i haven't found a number that doesn't work yet. I have tried replacing the 50 with other numbers but so far i cant find another one. so why 50? how could i adapt this formula to use any known squared number? and has this already been discoverd

    The reason it works for any number is if you rearrange the first equation to n=g+50, square both sides and expand the brackets, you get the second equation.

    Second equation? and i know why it works now i found it from the pattern of square numbers:
    2809 (53 squared)
    2704 (52 squared)
    2601 (51 squared)
    2500 (50 squared)

    By second equation, I meant this: 100g+g^2 + 2500 = n^2

    Quite cool. I think this could be a major breakthrough.

    Keep trying to modify your discovery so that it works with numbers other than 50.

    I see connections between 50 and 100 and 50 and 2500 that may be worth exploring further.
