I'm having trouble understanding your proof. Is there anyway you could spoiler it using some example numbers, instead of x,y,z please?

There is a problem in my previous post on the second case...it should be x+y in the second line instead of x-y...and adding in place of subtracting....
Spoiler for the numerical example..

don't be sorry! i'm just saying I'm trying to understand what you mean. Is there another way you could explain it? Or is it pretty much as simple as it gets in your explanation?
