    If $1 = 100 cents

    then $1 = 10c x 10c

    substitute for 10c = 1/10 of a dollar

    so $1 = (1/10 of a dollar) x (1/10 of a dollar)

    so $1 = 1/100 of a dollar .. which is 1 cent.

    $1 <> 10 cents x 10 cents

    $1 = 10 x 10 x cents

    One square meter is ten decimeter times ten decimeter. Because a square meter is an area while one decimeter is not.

    One dollar is not 10 cents times ten cents. Because a dollar is not an area. There is no way a dollar can be $^2.

    No, it's not picky.

    And that is why banknotes are oblong.
