Because:<BR>(a+b)<sup>2</sup> = a<sup>2</sup> + b<sup>2</sup> + 2ab <BR>(a-b)<sup>2</sup> = a<sup>2</sup> + b<sup>2</sup> - 2ab <BR> Subtracting these gives: <BR>4ab = (a+b)<sup>2</sup> - (a-b)<sup>2</sup> <BR> Or: <BR>ab = (a+b)<sup>2</sup>/4 - (a-b)<sup>2</sup>/4 <BR>which reduces the difficult parts from an x*y to an x<sup>2</sup>/4. With only one variable (and enough ram) lookup tables are suddenly back in frame. Add some amazing tricks based on the fact that a-b and a+b are always both even or both odd, and you can actually do very fast multiplies on a processor without mul.
