interesting thing I've noted...

2^21 = 2^21 = 1^2+2 2^31 = 3^22 = 2^2+3 2^51 = 6^25 = 5^2+6 2^131 = 91^290 = 90^2+91
I realise that x^2(x1)==(x1)^2+(x)
2,3,5 and 13 are all the powers of mersenne primes, and are Fibonacci numbers as well. It'd be interesting to see what's the next power of 2 that satisfies this equation.
