2 = 1
    #11350142 - 10/30/09 06:41 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

a = b (and are real non-zero numbers)
 
  //Multiply by a
= a2 = ab
 
  //Minus b2
= a2-b2 = ab-b2

= (a-b)(a+b) = b(a-b)

  //Divide by (a-b)
= a+b = b

  //Note a = b
= b+b = b
= 2b = b

//Divide by b
= 2 = 1

There's an error tho, for you to figure out

a and b have to be non zero numbers, and for that equation to work, a and b must equal zero.

You divided by (a-b), which if a=b, would equal zero, and you cannot divide by zero.

haha, yeah, our geology teacher showed us it once, from memory, so may be off.

women = time * money;

time  = money;

therefor, women = money^2;

money is the root of all evil;

in conclusion

women = evil;

peace
