In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

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

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

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?

Re: Add 99 more and post it forever.

Hi;

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

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