New formula for squaring a no.[or may be old].

Hey I was just playing with nos. I found a formula to sq. A no. I.e.
(<n-1>squared)+(2n+1)
'n' here implies the no. You want to sq.

Hi;

I can not follow that. Please explain a little better.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

This works if you know sq of no. Which lies before it just add 2xno.+1 to sq of no. Lying before the no.

You mean like this:

(2 * 6 + 1) + 6^2 = 49 which is 7^2?
