lol...The assumption was misleading...You dont have 2 variables, you only have 1. You can spot it when A squared=AxB...Since A=B then basically the former can just be read as A squared = A squared....or AA=AA...Hence the next breakdown equations are not applicable because it only has 1 variables and not 2...8-) A squared - B squared would equal to zero...
