hik, sorry buddy, i just editted. It's " x is not equal to 0"

buddy, you know children are extremely sensitive to learning around the age of Tanvi ....they will learn a lot from their parents' emotional expressions. Just keep showing her all your happiness and smiling so that she'll be an optimistic person later!! ^_^

Because x and y are integers ---> (y+1) and (x+1) must be factors of 1
We have two cases:
(y+1) = 1 and (x+1) =1
OR ( y+1) =-1 and (x+1) = -1
But the first case yields x= 0 ---> eliminate
The second case stands ---> y+1= -1 ---> y=-2
