From the aiming question, what is the difference between p+st = q+vt st=(qp)+vt let qp=w (st)^2=(w+vt)^2 (st)^2=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*v)t^2 0=w*w+2(w*v)t+(v*vs*s)t^2 and this p+st = q+vt 0=(qp)+(vs)t let qp=w vs=z 0=(w+zt)^2 w*w+2(z*w)t+(z*z)t^2 Why do I get two different looking solutions?

SORRY FOR DOUBLE POST, I ACCIDENTALLY PRESSED ENTER, AND THE FORUM DOESN'T LET ME EDIT

Equation isnt the same even if I replace the w with (pq) and z with (vs).
