We don't appreciate the feeble attempt at a teaser. You can introduce all kinds of complexity, but if there's not a reasonable expectation to be able to solve it with some math skills, it's rather pointless.

Wow that was hard. How hard was it to make this?

I didn't find that too hard or too easy. The first thing I noticed before even looking at the problem was that all of the solutions were perfect squares. I then took the square roots of each of them and attempted to find a half decent solution that worked for all of them.

Good puzzle.
