Subtract 1 from squared abbbb (Posted on 2008-08-16) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Determine all possible five digit positive decimal (base 10) integer(s) of the form abbbb, with a ≠ b, that contain no leading zeroes, such that (abbbb2 - 1) is equal to a positive ten digit integer (with no leading zeroes) containing each of the digits 0 to 9 exactly once.

Note: While the solution may be trivial with the aid of a computer program, show how to derive it without one.
