Let x = a² + b + c, where a² is the largest square number less than or equal to x, b is [x]a², and c is x[x]. So a and b are integers, and 0 ? c < 1. Then [x] = a²+b, and you should be able to show that a ? ?(a²+b) ? ?x < a+1.

a² ? a²+b ? a²+b+c < (a+1)² But a²+b = [x] so a² ? [x] ? x < (a+1)² and take square roots
