Lightbulb Square triangular number

In mathematics, a square triangular number (or triangular square number) is a number which is both a triangular number and a perfect square..In 1778 Leonhard Euler determined the explicit formula..The problem of finding square triangular numbers reduces to Pell's equation..Euler was featured on the sixth series of the Swiss 10-franc banknote and on numerous Swiss, German, and Russian postage stamps.. He is also commemorated by the Lutheran Church on their Calendar of Saints on 24 May – he was a devout Christian (and believer in biblical inerrancy) who wrote apologetics and argued forcefully against the prominent atheists of his time..The asteroid 2002 Euler was named after him...
