Nonsense.  The equation f(x)=x^2-1=0 has two solutions, not one.
They are x=1 and x=-1.

Of course.  Not only do you make up your own buzzwords to try to
bamboozle people, but you also make up your own meanings for the
words everyone else uses.

Are you absolutely positive your an expert mathematician?  I'd expect
any expert mathematician to understand what it means to prove something.

5 is a solution to x^2=25.  5 is a zero of f(x)=x^2-25.  Are you
saying that 5 is not a solution to x^2=25?  Are you really, truly
absolutely positive that you are an expert mathematician?

(By the way, x^2 means x squared.)
