In order to generate more traffic on this blog, I thought I’d occasionally introduce a puzzle for you to work on.

The first puzzle.

Nine digits, other than zero, can be arranged uniquely to form four numbers which are all squares:-

9 (32) 81 (92) 324 (182) 576 (242)

What is the smallest possible square number comprising all nine digits together, and the largest square number comprising all nine digits together?

  1. Should the squares use the numbers 1 through 9 just once? In other words, should each of the answers sought be exactly 9 digits long?

  2. Should I just post the answers here or should I email them to you? I don't want to be a spoiler by posting the answers in the comments for everyone to see.
