This thesis is based on the article "When is the Product of Two Oblong Numbers Another Oblong Number?". It is an exposition on some number patterns involving numbers of the form n(n + 1), which are known as oblong numbers. Also, it presents the use of Pell's equation in finding a set of triples (x, y, z) satisfying the equation x(x + 1)y(y + 1) = z(z + 1). The solution is given by a set of recurrence relations for x, y and z.
