    It's not the U that I was making fun of but you have to admit the comment made was funny!

    It made sense but you asked if it looked familiar, hence why I told you I've only used it in Union. Using u is fine.

    No, Harry did not ask that.

    Subhotosh asked whether the rewritten equation u^2-5u+4=0 looks like a familiar form, to you. (I think you never rewrote the equation.)

    It seems like either you have difficulty understanding written instruction or you don't pay much attention to what you're reading.
