The number is 499849. This number satisfies the 1st (its a square of 707) and 3rd (less than 500000) conditions.
Is there any other answers, ES?

Thanks ES, keep posting such great puzzles.
This puzzle messed my mind totally. Cause in the morning, I made a C code for this puzzle by considering the condition 2nd and 3rd. But I dont get any answer than I tried to combine all three coditions and here I messed up totally cause program wasn't working properly. Than I leave this for other CEans. But in the noon, I just checked my calculator that what is the square root of 500000, is was around 707.1, so I squared the 707 and surprise!!!! This was the answer I am searching for.
