Sometimes when I’m bored and I’m driving around, I like to think about how I can do things using code. Yesterday I was thinking to myself “Why are zero and two” the only two numbers (integers) that are equal with multiplication and addition?

Aside from real numbers like `{1.5,3}`

zero and two are the only two integers
that work for `x + y = x * y`

. But what if you didn’t know that or you wanted
to test that with code? How would you do that?

And that’s where my mind normally goes. **How would you do that with code?**

Here’s my short and sweet little solution using some simple `R`

code.

```
for (i in 0:9){
x = i + i
y = i * i
if (x == y){
print(paste("True for", i, sep = " "))
} else {
print(paste("False for", i, sep = " "))
}
}
```

Nothing earth-shattering, just a fun example for me to think about.
