Actually, you have the right idea, it's just that the ± symbol needs to come slightly earlier. Instead of:

you want to say:

And what amnkb is saying is that .

Just to give an idea about my nature, I respect always other's views and knowledge no matter if they sound right or wrong to me.

And when I contact others, I simply say what I know while I understand fully that they may have their good reasons not to accept everything I say/know.

Based on this definition, you mentioned, you are totally right.

I just added what I know because in my designs, if I ended up with the equation:

x^2 - 9 = 0

X^2 = 9

x = sqrt(9) = ±3

I had to consider both results.But in case you believe that I do wrong, and I have to ignore always the negative result, please accept my apology.

If it doesn't help then you can ask for clarification or ignore it but please don't get angry. That doesn't help anyone. Remember my post about when I was trolled.

I am not angry. Frustrated is a better word. I want to improve mathematically. This is not possible if members provides the entire solution. If I ask for a step by step solution, that's a different story.

what 'math' could i 'do' to correct the wrong info?

arent math definitions part of math?

but i'll leave bad info alone in future

sry

Also, stop saying sorry all the time. Understand? Just be normal, dude.

No apology needed. Let's stay on the math course.

I started on the forum as an ordinary member and I helped a few folk with questions. Then I was badly trolled because of an answer I gave. I spent the next few days composing angry and sarcastic responses (in my head) . In the end I decided to just say nothing.

What I didn't know until later is the moderators were discussing the situation and had privately ordered the troll to retract what had been written. They also discussed my behaviour and decided to ask me if I would become a moderator.

If you had said nothing I wouldn't have known about this other forum incident at all. Sometimes saying nothing is the best policy.

As the old saying goes: Silence is golden. It's ok for me that you know about my experience in not just one math forum but several forums. There are lots of angry folks in the world that really hate to see others happy doing something they enjoy.

youre so kind and patient

thank you
