Can anyone define the operator for the square?
I tried addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication, and I could not get the result.

You have misinterpreted the problem. This type of problem "invents" a new operator, defined in the question stem. Follow the patten that it shows you to get the answer.

Well done to all of you.

Just in case for those who still could not catch it, and I have just figured it.

Column A

Try to substitute x=0, and y=2 into the equation.

Column B

Try to substitute x = -1, and y = -1 into the equation.
