GUYS!!! I THINK I FOUND NEW FORMULA!!!

Just try to multiply numbers, that have one common "middle" number between them, got it? For example, multiply 5 by 3, (they have **one** middle number, which is 4), the answer is 15. Can I say that the middle number between them squared can be **Result+1** (4^{2}=15+1)? Try it with larger numbers! That's fun! THAT'S NOT A JOKE!!! Please, check it.

YES it will always work!

I don't know how much algebra you have done but....

See if this makes sense

Let the middle number be x

So the one just below it is x-1 and the one just above it is x+1

The product of these two will be

\((x-1)(x+1) = x(x+1)-1(x+1)\\ (x-1)(x+1) = x^2+x-x-1\\ (x-1)(x+1) = x^2-1\\ (x-1)(x+1){\bf{+1}} {= x^2}\\\)

I agree, patterns in maths are COOL !

**!!!Mr. BB!!! Congratulations on your formula discovery.**

I’d nominate you for a __Fields Medal__, but I’m sure you are a few decades past the maximum age limit. But maybe you’ll win a “quantized Fields Medal,” a sobriquet for the International Mathematical Union (IMU) silver plaque presented to Andrew Wiles in recognition for his proof of Fermat's Last Theorem.

However, if more of these are ever presented, I suspect the recipients will be less than 45 years of age; and I could only speculate (wildly) for which kinds of math the awards may be presented. But I’m fairly sure it won’t be for this one.
