Article talk pages[edit]

Information icon Welcome to Wikipedia and thank you for your contributions. I am glad to see that you are discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Complex number are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic or unrelated topics. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you. - DVdm (talk) 09:17, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

DVdm is perfectly right. however, to help you, the point is that squaring something, as for example in (x+1)2, means multiplying a number by itself, not multiplying two different numbers. That means (x+1)2 is an abbreviation for (x+1)(x+1), in which both occurrences of (x+1) represent the same number: you can't take one of them as 3 and the other as −3.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information icon Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. When you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion (but never when editing articles), please be sure to sign your posts. There are two ways to do this. Either:

  1. Add four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment; or
  2. With the cursor positioned at the end of your comment, click on the signature button (Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png) located above the edit window.

This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is necessary to allow other editors to easily see who wrote what and when.

Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 20:12, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
