Actually I don't think your two expressions are
the same mathematically. Well okay maybe the mathematical expressions are but the Excel expressions are not - there is an ambiguity in starting an expression with -x^2 and it requires some reading of the fine print to determine whether this is interpreted as -(x^2) or (-x)^2.
Whatever you prove I don't think your going to change Microsofts mind on this.
