The present work deals with theory of numbers in which detached coefficients method and staircase method were employed. The two methods were computed with their algorithms and illustrative example to ascertain the results for square of numbers and cubic of integer’s numbers.

Keywords: Numbers; Algorithms; Modified Detached Coefficients Method; Staircase Method.
