Looks like I messed up there.

I meant that x is non-zero, either positive or negative.

<![CDATA[Re: Squaring numbers without the number]]> hi Phro,

As you've used less than signs rather than less than or equal, your set of values is very small indeed.

If I show you my proof you'll understand this, I think.

Can you state this in clearer terms? It is... a little hard to comprehend.
