    This was on the Tickle IQ test. I couldn't work it out.

    John likes 400 but not 300; he likes 100 but not 99; he likes 3600 but not 3700. Which does he like?

    a} 900
    b} 1000
    c} 1100
    d} 1200

    This might sound stupid but I still don't get it. What do you mean by squares exactly?

    In loose terms, a square integer is an integer that may be expressed as the square of another integer.

    For example, 900 is a square because it is equal to 30 times 30.
