## Homework Statement

why will σ_xl disappear in the equation ? [ [σ_xl - (σx -σy)/ 2 ] ^2 ] = ( [ (σx -σy)/ 2] ^2 ) is it wrong ?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I don't think the above equation is supposed to follow from a simple manipulation of one side to produce the other. Rather, this equation is the result of some sequence of steps. Note that you have misquoted it: on the left hand side it should be σxy, not minus.
