then maybe you should master it , and stop letting it master you.

after all it is what it is.

its mathematics ,

you have allowed teachers to prevent you from mastering mathematics.

and quit making a fool of yourself

I have presented plenty of evidence that supports my logic.

you and kallog have only shown how yourselves and others have been taught wrongly.

rather than using numbers to try and show you your error

I will use words , it might help to break the barrier your brain has thrown up to shield itself due to its brainwashing.

two times two equals four.

two plus two equals four.

two squares plus two squares equal four squares

two squares times two equal four squares

if I count the number of squares in four square feet I find that there are four squares.

if I think about two square feet laid out in a straight line

I can visualize two squares.

but two squares is not square.

if I want to make a square using squares with a area of one square foot I need to use four squares.

if I visualize what I made using the four squares I see one square.

inside the square there are four squares.

four squares in a square equal four squares.

two squares times two in a square equal four squares

two square foot areas times two in a square equals four square foot areas

and four square foot areas in a square equals an area two feet squared

(two feet) x (two feet) = four feet

(two feet squared) x (two feet squared) = four feet squared

thus the below is not correct , not true , not logical

(two feet) x (two feet ) = four feet squared

just like

2ft * 2ft = 4ft^2 is not correct.

but

2ft^2 * 2ft^2 = 4ft^2 is correct

because 2ft^2 = 4 sq ft

so

4 ft * 4 ft = 16 sq ft = 4ft^2
