I have recently, been experimenting with numerical sequences, one of which were inspired by this problem. Please view the following work which I have conducted to arrive at my proof. Images are attached.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science
related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should
explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments
should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .

Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.

Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Nice Observation and theorem. You can establish if no has yet and you should try to have a proof and try it with large numbers because maybe they can act as counter examples.

Thank you for the kind reply! Unfortunately, I'm not quite sure the process of a formal proof, or how to establish. It would be great if you could elaborate. Thanks!

Well i am sorry to say that what your trying to prove is not a theorem but just common properties.
This is because your stating that n^2-k=n+k which can be written as
n^2-n=2k or n(n-1)/2=k. Which is nothing but mere division and nothin else.

I knew Refath. I commented because if someone is wrong it's our responsibility to correct him/her.
Note-Please Remove this bullshit or someone else will.
