**Reiny**, Monday, March 17, 2008 at 4:16pmI hope it's just me, but I am confused by your question.

Why are you calling the large square x^2, the rectangle x, and the smaller square by just a constant???

This makes no sense.

**Dj**, Monday, March 17, 2008 at 5:28pmThe reason why I call the big square x^2, the rectangle x and the smaller square by just constant is because when you are using polynomial tiles the big square stands for x^2 of -X^2 while the rectangle stand for just x or -x and the small square stand for numbers.
