Sounds like a lucky number.

<<Dattatreya Ramchandra Kaprekar (1905–1986) was an Indian recreational mathematician who described several classes of natural numbers including the Kaprekar, harshad and self numbers and discovered the Kaprekar's constant, named after him. Despite having no formal postgraduate training and working as a schoolteacher, he published extensively and became well known in recreational mathematics circles.

A Kaprekar number is a positive integer with the property that if it is squared, then its representation can be partitioned into two positive integer parts whose sum is equal to the original number (e.g. 45, since 452=2025, and 20+25=45, also 9, 55, 99 etc.)

Some examples of Kaprekar numbers in base 10,
are (sequence A006886 in the OEIS):

Code: Select all

Number 	    Square 	        Decomposition
.................................................
 703 	 703² = 494209 	        494+209 = 703
2728 	2728² = 7441984 	744+1984 = 2728
5292 	5292² = 28005264 	28+005264 = 5292
7777 	7777² = 60481729 	6048+1729 = 7777
