Can you tell what was the bus number?

0 votes

Jay was an old friend of Rakesh and was coming to visit him from a small town. Jay came over late. When Rakesh asked him the reason, Jay told him that when he was coming to the city in the bus, he had placed his luggage under his seat. While getting off, he had forgotten to take back the luggage and by the time he had realized, the bus had left. So he went to a police station to report about it, which took him time. Rakesh inquired what happened next, to which Jay replied that he does not remember the bus number but there was a certain peculiarity about it – the bus number was a perfect square and when turned upside down, then it was also a perfect square! Jay requested his friend Rakesh to help him.
Rakesh quickly phoned the bus company and came to know they had only 500 buses numbered from 1 to 500. Using this information, Rakesh deduced the bus number within a minute.

The answer is 196.
196 = 14×14
961 = 31×31

solution Jul 10 by 이기가
Sir as bus numbers are 1 to 500 only so 691 is not possible
I said 196 was the answer, not 691.  691 was my mistake of 961.
When 196 turned upside down, it is 961. Excuse  my poor English.
First of all thanks for your response/healthy discussion.
Secondly you don't worry about your english.
You can write in hinglish means hindi in english.
The answer is 169=13x13
Upside down =196=14x14

Created I was, in 1841,
By someone with the name of an evil one,
He was a Belgian, living in Paris,
This man had to be very zealous.

Fourteen of me, this young man made,
Some above A, but not quite B,
With some higher than D, but lower than E,
And some that are C, and three halves above D,
That's why my popularity's so easy to see.

Golden with lacquer, I usually am,
I sometimes am used to honor Uncle Sam,

Patented I was in 1846,
I'm the one who gives some their kicks,
I'm shaped like a J - with a hook on the end,
So, can you tell what I am?
