I am not here to start an argument about how old the world is, I am here to point out that the average American is an idiot by giving evidence that 45% of American adults believe that the world is 10,000 years old. If you want proof of the age of the Earth, however, look at the continental drift theory and how long it takes for tectonic plates to move continents and then note how far apart the continents are apart and it will come apparent to you that the Earth is well over 10,000 years in age.﻿

Contest it dude, they phrased the question wrong, they probably meant to say "the sum of two smaller square INTEGERS" in which case it's 25 (3 squared plus 4 squared) but they accidentally asked a question where every single number in existence is correct.﻿

I'm American, and I was thinking "Which of these square numbers also happens to be the sum of two smaller square numbers" meant which one is a square number, which the result is also a square number. So 16 is to 4 which is to 2. 2x2 is 4 and 4x4 is 16.﻿

Not his fault. The question was broken, it should've said "smaller squared numbers" instead of "smaller square numbers".﻿

"But it's also correct that 0²+4²=16 (0+16=16 in this case) So I guess the guys who made the question messed it up very badly." The question is actually correct. The key word that does not permit your argument is "smaller." 16 is not smaller than 16, so 0 + 16 = 16 does not satisfy the conditions of the problem.﻿
