puzzler – the puzzle kiosk, round 2
A quick puzzle to freshen you up – here it goes:
While visiting a small town in the United States, I lost my overcoat in a bus. When I reported the matter to the bus company I was asked the number of the bus. Though I did not remember the exact number I did remember that the bus number had a certain peculiarity about it. The number plate showed the bus number was a perfect square and also if the plate was turned upside down, the number would still be a perfect square – of course it was not?
I came to know from the bus company they had only five hundred buses numbered from 1 to 500.
From this I was able to deduce the bus number. Can you tell what was the number?
