so i figured out an interesting way to figure out perfect squares.

so everybody know that the sq. root of 1 is 1? right?
add 1 and 2(the next square) to 1.
that's 4. 4 is the square of 2.
add 2 and 3 to 4, you get 9.
9 is the square of 3.
add 3 and 4 to 9.
you get 16, the square of 4.
add 4 and 5 to 16,
you get 25, the square of 5.
get it?
it's impractical but whatever. i think it's quite interesting, and i've never seen anybody see this pattern.
so am i god or what?

So, just a quick thought.

There are a lot of people naturally gifted in fields of academia. Hell, you may be one.

But there are a lot of people naturally gifted in fields of academia who are older than you, have doctorates and decades of field work under their belts.

It's possible you've come up with something new, but in all likelihood, 99 of 100 times, it's already been thought of by someone much more qualified. They're paid just to sit and think for a reason.

Not to say this isn't cool or helpful - it definitely is. Just giving context.

Woah there Issac Newton don't get too revolutionary in your mathematical thinking.
grok it.

Probably not. I'll go read your post now.

x^2=(x-1)^2+x+(x-1)

x^2=x^2-2x+1+x+x-1

x^2=x^2

Unfortunately it's nothing innovational, just a nice coincidence

Oh hey national association for mathematics? I just came up with this awesome way to figure out perfect squares. What would I like to call it? The Twist of Fate theorum.

Yes that will be cash.

You can take that cash and buy yourself some more

I'm pretty sure these are all just Pythagorean triplets.

Only 3, 4, 5 is. The rest is slow multiplication.

That is nifty TS. Keep up the good work. (I'm not being sarcastic, I'm actually complimenting you).

I couldn't follow your shitty description but that sounds like triangles.

ill make it clearer,
so the symbol for square root in this case is *

so:
*1=1
*4=2
*9=3
*16=4
*25=5
*36=6
*49=7
*64=8
*81=9
*100=10
*121=11
*144=12
*169=13
*196=14
*255=15
so basically with your square roots, you add the perfect squares to the roots, so to get the square of 2, you add 1 and 2 to the square root of 1. to get the square of 3, you add 2 and 3 to the square of 2. and so forth.
EDIT: im really shitty at explaining this, but you should understand by now.

The more general rule as I've found it to be is:

n^2 = (n-1)^2 + 2(n-1) + 1

So 26 squared would be 25 squared plus twice 25 plus one. Do the math and that gives you

625 + 50 + 1 = 676

Which is indeed 26 squared.

This is none too difficult and handy for finding squares near numbers you already know the squares of.

Never mind, too many numbers to be triangles.

n^2 + n + (n+1) = (n+1)^2

right?

Hmmm, what's seventy five squared

n^2 + n + (n+1) = (n+1)^2

Herp. Derp.

x^2 + x + x + 1 = (x+1)^2
x^2 + 2x + 1 = (x+1)^2

That looks amazingly familiar. SHEdit: Binomial thereom, y = 1.
