sqrt 16 = x
sqrt 16 =  x 4 = x (4)^2 = (x)^2 16 = 16 sqrt 16 = sqrt x^2 = sqrt (x * x) sqrt 16 = x, now multiply both sides by negative 1 again sqrt 16 = x 4 = x sqrt 16 = 4 P.j.S

P.j.S In fact you use traditional operators 's symbols assigning them new properties. If you want to introduce New Mathematical operators, then please invent new ontology. In my next post I shall expound that issue. Below consider PrintScreen image concerning the equations you provided above (please delete spaces as I cannot post URLs yet): ://lh4. ggpht. com/_T8rxhWAaBf8/TDYYM0mGmAI/AAAAAAAAABc/6QqSD0MPx3A/s800/forPjS.

sqrt 16 = sqrt (x * x) sqrt 16 = x = 4 Above I mentioned that you use traditional operators assigning them new properties. You should define your own operators and should not use the traditional ones. It is very important. Look: sqrt (x * x) is not equal to x because the definition of Operator SQRT is not such. In fact you must introduce a new operator e.g. sqrtPJS stating that 1. sqrtPJS[x]=sqrtPJS[x] if x>0 2. sqrtPJS[(x)*(x)]=x if x>0 3. etc The line sqrt 16 = x in the original post is proved true. sqrt 16 = x times 1 is the same as sqrt 16 = x or x = 4. Here again the same problem with ontology: sqrt (16) is not equal to  sqrt (16) ! While after defining properly the sqrtPJS operator you can write sqrtPJS (16) =  sqrt (16) Certainly later on you should demonstrate how this NEW OPERATOR shall facilitate CORRECT solution of some Mathematical Problems. If you prove to scientific community that that operator is effective to be used and we can solve many problems without usage of the Imaginary Numbers then many shall use that operator. Can you show that this NEW OPERATOR shall facilitate CORRECT solution of some Mathematical Problems???

x^2 is the same as x*x = x^2. eg. 3*3 = 3^2
sqrt x^2 = sqrt x * x = x. sqrt 16 = x x = 4 = sqrt 16 x = 4 x^2 = 16 x^2 = 16 16 = 16 sqrt 16 = sqrt x^2 sqrt 16 = sqrt (x * x) sqrt 16 = x = 4 sqrt 16 = x sqrt 16 = 4 = x x = 4 sqrt 16 = 4 here again x = 4 is solved without the sqrt 16 = x line. P.j.S

x = 4
x = 4 x^2 = 4x x^2 = 16 x^2 = 16 x = sqrt 16 4 = sqrt 16 The idea is to make x = sqrt 16. Then the sqrt of (x = 4) * (x = 4) is 4 and then 4 = sqrt 16. sqrt x^2 = sqrt x * x = x sqrt x^2 = sqrt x * x = x sqrt "" multiplying by 1 yields x sqrt "+" for example sqrt 16 times 1 equals "" sqrt +16 = 4. Negative 4 is the square root of 16. P.j.S

x^2 + 1 = 0
x^2 = 1  x^2 = 1 sqrt x^2 = sqrt 1 sqrt (x)(x) = sqrt 1 x = 1 x = 1 1 = 1 1 = 1 1  1 = 0 x^2 + 1 = 0 (1)^2 + 1 = 2 (1)^2 + 1 = 2(1) x^2 + 1 = 2x x^2 + 2x + 1 = 0 Now we have the true equation. Taking the square root... x + 1 = sqrt 0 x + 1 = 0 x = 1 "Trip" I see in your picture that you probably trip over your lip.

sqrt 16 = x sqrt 16 =  x 4 = x (4)^2 = (x)^2 16 = 16 sqrt 16 = sqrt x^2 = sqrt (x * x) sqrt 16 = x, now multiply both sides by negative 1 again sqrt 16 = x 4 = x sqrt 16 = 4 P.j.S sqrt 16 = x 16 = x^2 x^2 + 16 = 0 x = 4 from above (4)^2 + 16 = 32 (4)^2 + 16 = 8(4) x^2 + 16 = 8x x^2 + 8x + 16 = 0 sqrt (x^2 + 8x + 16) = sqrt 0 x + 4 = 0 x = 4 P.j.S

It appears that x^2 + 1 = 0 is a mathematical error or is incomplete or both.
The exercise shows that x = 1 yet when applied to x^2 the result is 2 not 0 in the equality. Finishing the equation with a result of 2 shows that it is more correctly written as x^2 + 2x + 1 = 0 The square root of which is x+1. I hope that you have found this thread to be interesting. PJS 
Trip like I do

x^2 + 1 = 0 x^2 = 1 x^2 = 1 sqrt x^2 = sqrt 1 sqrt x^2 = 1 sqrt x^2 = 1 = x^2 sqrt x^2 = x^2 therefore sqrt  cancels and leaves x^2 = x^2 = 1 Wow! x^2 + 16 = 0 x^2 = 16 sqrt x^2 = sqrt 16  sqrt x^2 = sqrt 16 sqrt x^2 = 16 sqrt sqrt x^2 = sqrt 16 sqrt x = 4 sqrt x = 4 x = 4 Wow! x^2 + 16 = 0 (4)^2 + 16 = 32 16 + 16 = 8(4) x^2 + 16 = 8(x) x^2 + 8x + 16 = 0 sqrt (x^2 + 8x + 16) = sqrt 0 (x + 4) = 0 x = 4 Wow!

Two examples of square roots in my opinion...
sqrt 16 = 4 so (+4)^2 = (4)^2 = 16 sqrt 16 = 4 so 4 * 4 = 16 so in general terms ... sqrt (x^2) = x so x * x = (x^2) ...looking for the solution to sqrt 16 = +4

x^2 + 16 = 0
x^2 = 16 (x^2) = 16 sqrt (x^2) = 4 or 4 Therefore my assertion that in general terms is correct ... sqrt (x^2) = +x so x * x = (x^2) x^2 + 1 = 0 x^2 = 1 (x^2) = 1 sqrt (x^2) = sqrt 1 = +1 Therefore the square root 1 = +1. P.j.S .
