[20152016^2]  / ( [ 20152015^2]   + [20152017^2]  - 2 ] )  =

 

[20152016^2] / ( [ 20152016 - 1]^2 + [ 20152016 + 1]^2 - 2 )  =

 

[20152016^2] /( 20152016^2 - 2(20152016) + 1 + 20152016^2 + 2(20152016) + 1  - 2 )   =

 

[20152016^2] / [ 2(20152016^2]  =

 

1/2

 

P.S.  - I did NOT "peek" at any other answer before I did mine.....scout's honor  !!!!

Let \(a = 20152016, \) and we have

 

\(\displaystyle \frac{a^{2}}{(a-1)^{2}+(a+1)^{2}-2}=\frac{a^{2}}{(a^{2}-2a+1)+(a^{2}+2a+1)-2}=\frac{a^{2}}{2a^{2}}=\frac{1}{2}\).

Hey guest, thanks for that.

 

Why don't you join up.  We would love that!

We would really like you to present a regular contest question but it would be even better still if it belonged to your username.

If you really do not want to do this for some reason then it would be good if you identified yourself in the first line or heading.

Like for instance.

"Bob's daily question contest."
