 Even Digit Perfect Square(s) (Posted on 2008-10-25)
Determine all possible 7-digit decimal (base 10) perfect square(s), each of whose digits is nonzero and even.

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

1. Isn't it A030098? ... or A103751?

2. Now that a computer program is being used (IE, Firefox or Chrome), might as well do one tailored to the task instead:

DEFDBL A-Z
st = INT(SQR(1000000)): fin = INT(SQR(9999999))
FOR sr = st TO fin
sq = sr * sr
s\$ = LTRIM\$(STR\$(sq))
good = 1
FOR i = 1 TO LEN(s\$)
IF INSTR("2468", MID\$(s\$, i, 1)) = 0 THEN good = 0: EXIT FOR
NEXT
IF good THEN PRINT s\$
NEXT

2862864
8282884
8868484

I would be interested in how one could do this with no computer.
