In mathematics

Fifty is the smallest number that is the sum of two non-zero square numbers in two distinct ways: 50 = 12 + 72 = 52 + 52.[1] It is also the sum of three squares, 50 = 32 + 42 + 52, and the sum of four squares, 50 = 62 + 32 + 22 + 12. It is a Harshad number.[2]

There is no solution to the equation ?(x) = 50, making 50 a nontotient.[3] Nor is there a solution to the equation x − ?(x) = 50, making 50 a noncototient.[4]
