taken from this exercise it may not be reused without the information that x and y denote negative integers.
Let us slightly modify this example and look at it's source code, say from an HTML page:</p> <pre> If <i>x</i> and <i>y</i> are negative integers, <i>f</i> and <i>g</i> are the functions introduced in <a href="definition2p1">Chapter 2, Definition 1</a>, then <ul>
For example the start file of the example above would contain:</p> <pre> If <i>x</i> and <i>y</i> are negative integers, <i>f</i> and <i>g</i> are the functions introduced in <a href="definition2p1">Chapter 2, Definition 1</a>, then <ul> </pre> <p>while the end file would contain just</p> <pre>
