I have created an equation, I do not know if it has been made before. It organizes all of the perfect squares into a sequence.

\( s_{n}=((sqrt(s_{n-1})*2)+1)+s_{n-1} \) Please note, I made this as a result of boredom. This is my first time posting a note or equation, do not mind the formatting errors. \( s_{1}=1 \)

Yes, but I was purposefully attempting to complete this without exponents.Log in to reply
