revised Using “we have” in maths papers
Corrected spelling, changed format a little. Don't agree with answer, but it is important for balance, and the user is new, and possibly another woman on Math SE. It would be great to have more of us!

grammar, minor formatting changes

revised Why are there so few Euclidean geometry problems that remain unsolved?
User is being courteous by giving attribution to DavidH, but without having been in the very same situation on MathSE too, the question was inscrutable. Also, it is Euclid not euclid

Tried to make title more understandable, removed unrelated tag

comment How would you explain to a 9th grader the negative exponent rule?
VERY similar question, How to explain Fractional and Negative Exponents? asked by a 9th grader, to explain to other 9th graders.

comment I almost quit self-studying mathematics, but should I continue?
@AlexanderGruber Yes! Combinatorics is so fun! Clever, engaging little puzzles that sometimes have surprising applicability in ways that you never anticipated, sometimes even YEARS later!

comment Are “if” and “iff” interchangeable in definitions?
@tomasz I NEVER SAID that it was the poster's fault. My very first comment said that it was NOT his fault, see here please. I told you, YOU WIN! I LOST! I AM WRONG. I hang my head in shame. I bear my throat in defeat. Please stop! I have had enough! I asked you to stop, twice! What more do you want from me? Stop summoning me by name, to remind me each time I visit an SE site! Please don't make me cry again. And don't any of you criticize me.

@tomasz It doesn't need a citation. It needs something, else there is a lack of consistency with the other good answers. It isn't fair to them. I don't especially care, but am puzzled that you continue to assert that on Math SE, it is sufficient for one to answer with "yeah that's the way it is" and get 16 up votes. And also that you would continue to claim that the answer "may be a little too concise". May be, a little, and too concise are qualifiers that would be confusing to someone new studying mathematics, as that would imply that this sort of answer were adequate. Enough! You win.

revised Why can't you square both sides of an equation?
Trying the SECOND time to revise this! Tag addition, removed unnecessary and confusing verbiage.

@tomasz It doesn't need a citation necessarily. If this answer is so obvious, then why is it necessary to ask the question at all? Also, why is it necessary for all the other answers to have substantive content, if the answer is so trivially obvious?
