Didn’t use a systematic approach.
As we know its a 5 digit no. greater than 50000 and ending in 6, it should be the square of a number ending in 4/6
Now thre are 5 such numbers 224/226/234/236/244
Of these 224 and 236 satisfy. The numbers are 50176 and 55696.
The sum is 8 or 20.
If didn;t take much time.
