121? or do U want something more substantive?

after deleting the last digit (1), we get 12, not a square.

confused; it says deleting its last two digits; e.g., 121 would prune the 21 leaving 1; if deleting just last digit, then answer would be 16; hope I'm not reading wrong - enjoy the problems on this site;

Sorry. My mistake

The problem as stated is not very interesting. Something should be added to produce a more interesting problem.
