How are you getting those expansions?

By a program that does them for me.

52^2 + 116^2 + 140^2 = 35760

Mathematica?

Do you have a proof that this can be done as for all numbers?

Mathematica yes.

Sum of squares? Yes there is a proof.

74^2 + 91^2 + 149^2 = 35958

91^2 + 93^2 + 95^2 + 101^2 = 36156

```
PowersRepresentations[36156, 4, 2]//Last

The proof? What proof are we talking about?

2 x 107^2 + 116^2 = 36354

I think it was Legendre who proved that 4 squares were enough for any number. The proof requires quarternions.

94^2 + 104^2 + 130^2 = 36552

Is it like a complex hyperspace where both the axes are complex?

If ij =k then how can ji = -k, that makes sense?

Hi;

That I do not know because I know nothing about complex hyperspace.

92^2 + 110^2 + 128^2 = 36948

What about the proof, then?
