Infinitely Zero

Someone who likes math can explain this one. I'm far too tired from writing it to explain it.

Actually, there are cases where you get more than one answer. Such as f(x)=x^2. If f(x)=4, then the x has two possible solutions: -2 and 2. But that's just the most prominent example.

@Grenartia: I meant the math on approaching zero, but I won't deny that you are right on positive and negative integers.

@GreenKrog:

I didn't notice any limits, and didn't see anything that would cause the function to be anything other than 0 as x approaches 0. Also, it is sometimes possible for one side of a limit to go to positive infinity, and the other side to go to negative infinity, so even then, more than one answer. :P

@Grenartia: No no, what she is talking about, not the actual written numbers in the first frame.

Whoops. My bad. >.<

@GreenKrog: I might be reading it wrong, but if it is equivalently f(x+c)=x^2 + 2xc +c^2, then by factoring it would be the same as f(x+c)=(x+c)^2 or f(x)=x^2 (though Annie got 2x, so they don't quite line up). The notation is just confusing me terribly, but then again, math notation without a strong formatting engine is difficult.
