Yup. T'was my intention too ^^ .

Correction: as x -> 1; not -> 0.

comment Problem understanding the Axiom of Foundation
It's 3 am over here and this makes sense... scary. I sort of get it now, though. There must be (a) 'most elementary composition part(s)' for a set; something that can't be broken down further into a kind that can belong to the big set, or something like that.

If I may ask, which member of $x$ doesn't intersect it? Complete math beginner here (came here after reading something about Haskell; I just want a pointer to which element you mean).

comment Signs in binomial expansions
Thank you; the gears clicked into place! Once the exams are over, I'll put on an answer that's -hopefully- as intuitive as I get it now.

comment Signs in binomial expansions
That doesn't tell why it was decided (apparently, that's how I was given it) that such terms, at face value, need the expansion with opposite signs. I added an (*) in the \$\$ so see there for what I meant.

comment Conditions on roots of a quadratic
@KannappanS, Discriminant! I wrote it the other way as I remembered its pronunciation in class... So many faults in my educational system... Anyway, it's ($\Delta = b^2-4ac$).

He asked for my trial on the second one and so I did... I never intended it to be un-respectful and I knew it doesn't work in questions yet I only wanted it visible as the answer he requested.

I tried it with the second and can't get the $x$ and $n+3$ out... Where can I post a photo?

Can't delete prev. comments. - @JohannesK, Isn't Vieta's formula where we use a discrement to extract the roots? I tried but that didn't work.

@GerryM, I'd said it was weird from the get go... It did actually use different case letters! - It's from my curriculum book, 10th grade equiv., Egypt.

But that would make $9a^2c = 2b^2$ which isn't the answer provided. It does seem logical and correct in steps but here they look for how good you followed the book even if it's incorrect. So I just need a confirmation that there's no other way to re-produce the answer provided. - I'll follow your steps and post the second one.

comment Getting the grip of geometry and Algebra; books and resources for a beginner
I'm afraid I can't try all those due to my bandwidth but I'll sure look for the title you emphasized and see if I could get a link for the whole collection and download it from a cafe or something.
