Squares built from leftovers (Posted on 2018-04-05) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Let N1=123456789
Erase n digits and shrink the remnants of N1 into one continuous chain creating a new number N1'.

What is the minimum number of digits to be erased so that N1' will be a square number?

Same question for N2=987654321 and N2'.

For the second, you must mean A124683

Interesting they differ only in the third digit from the left.
