I can't solve this for you, as my maths isn't good enough, but I can suggest a start: A number ending in 0 squared is a number ending in 00. A number ending in 1 or 9 squared is a number ending in 1. A number ending in 2 or 8 squared is a number ending in 4. A number ending in 3 or 7 squared is a number ending in 9. A number ending in 4 or 6 squared is a number ending in 6. A number ending in 5 squared is a number ending in 25. Thus you can eliminate some possibilities for the squares you search for.

@Cheese3.1416 Well, that's OK, a computer program might use this to narrow things down. But it is simpler to use the two square identity (a^2+b^2)(c^2+d^2) = (ac+bd)^2 + (ad-bc)^2

aka the Brahmaguptaâ€“Fibonacci identity
