More colouricaly, we search for 4 squares such the sum of first and second is equal to third and the sum of second and third is equal to fourth. So we can make a generalized question. Does the system:
Just being used to "group" the two equations together - more typographic than mathematic. If it was |x| that would mean absolute value.
What you're basically looking for is two pythagorean triplets that go:
Let write the system as:
a, b, x, and y = 0 is a solution, though uninteresting.
What is the | for? Is it a mathematical symbol?
Can anybody solve the system
