1 + 1= 2 1 - 1=0 1 * 1 is 1 and 1 divided by 1 is 1 take all four answers and add them together and you get four. Four is the first square, two times two equals four...... Now two plus two is four 2 - 2 is zero though 2 * 2 is 4 2 / 2 x 1... When adding a squared number 3 * 3you could do this for any number and it'll give you the square up the following number

hi Knewlogik

How interesting! But can you prove it always works?

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

Hi Bob;

But can you prove it always works?

I found a proof for 0<x<0, but it doesn't quite satisfy 'always'.

hi Phro,

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

Mathegocart

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

Looks like I messed up there.

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