Suppose a and b are positive integers. We all know that aČ+2ab+bČ is a perfect square. Give an example where also aČ+ab+bČ is a perfect square. How many such examples exist?

Thanks for the list, Charlie!
It now seems that for all the prime numbers, a second value of b can be found:
b = a^2  ((a+1)/2)^2
