Similarly we could partition 10 000 into a squares/chunke of 100.
Now we have 100 of those, we could write the representation of these chunck as 1/100 chunk of total square of 100^2.

We now pick 5 of those chunks 5 and square them give us 25 chunks a 100 and although the chunk is just 1/100 of 10 000 we have a positive product for the factors.

There is something to learn here in arithmetic size, magnitude, granularity do not affect the rules, why you may ask, it is because behind arithmetic is geometry, but if you build bad arithmetic you will know it because your geomtry will be fucket up.
