Sixty Four Squares
2 to the 6th Power = 64
The sixth powers of integers can be characterized as the numbers that are simultaneously squares and cubes. In this way, they are related to two other classes of figurate numbers: the square triangular numbers, which are simultaneously square and triangular, and the solutions to the cannonball problem, which are simultaneously square and square-pyramidal.
In the archaic notation of Robert Recorde, the sixth power of a number was called the “zenzicube”, meaning the square of a cube. Similarly, the notation for sixth powers used in 12th century Indian mathematics by Bhāskara II also called them either the square of a cube or the cube of a square.
81 will be my next square in my life of numbers.
