With that finally acceptable answer, did quo learn anything
new that I hadn't already told you?

Why do you block your email address while others such as I, don't?

My response was appropriate to the quality of your unacademic

I suspect that the above question is not actually yours.

If that's the case, what is the actual source?

Is it from a poster in another forum? If so, why do you omit
mention of the poster and the forum?

Is it from a book or math contest?

Why do you repeatedly post questions that are not your own
without giving credit to the source?
