Mar 12 comment Solve $A_n=A_{n-1}+\lfloor \sqrt{A_{n-1}}\rfloor$ Maybe it helps if you see both equalities: $(m+k)^2+m-k+(m+k)=(m+k)^2+2m$ and $(m+k)^2+2m+(m+k)=(m+(k+1))^2+m-(k+1)$ Jul 31 comment Given a system of quadratic equations $x^2-a_ix+b_i=0$, can all of the coefficients $a_i$, $b_j$ be solution to one of these above equation? Nice to see you come forward in this nice pb. Do you see now why $\sum {b_i} = 0$ and $\prod{a_i}=1$ come from ? (assuming each $b_i \neq 0$, it can be done without loss of generality after eliminating the solutions $\{x^2 - k_i x = 0 , i=1..n\}$) Don't forget in your study of the permutation on the set of equations, that it's possible to have many intricated cycles.

Jul 23 awarded Critic Jul 22 comment Roots with equal fractional parts Isn't it, if m = n : $[(x-r)^n-a]-[x^n-b]$. So $r= 0$ and directly $a=b$.
