1 = 2 Identify The Flaw
    #1257519 - 01/29/03 06:23 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

X=Y<>0
X * X = Y * X
X^2 - Y^2 = Y*X - Y^2
(X+Y)(X-Y) = Y(X-Y)
X+Y = Y
but X=Y. thus
Y+Y = Y
2Y = Y
2 = 1

Appears simple enough, but obviousley 2 doesn't equal 1, so find the flaw!

I'm dissapointed no-ones got it yet, I'll give you a clue - theres an impossible operation involved. I'm going to bed soon, I'll expect it solved in the morning! :wink:

X^2 - Y^2 = 0


(X+Y)(X-Y) = 0

2(0) = 0

Y+Y = Y


this is the flaw

there is no possible way for Y + Y to be = to Y. the only possibly way is if the first two Y's were like...Y sub 1. and the one on the right side of the equal sign would have to be Ysub2. but since this isnt dealing with coordinates, its not like that.

there is your flaw.

Y + Y = 2Y

This step:

(X+Y)(X-Y) = Y(X-Y)
to:
X+Y = Y

Is where the error is. X = Y, so X-Y=0 and you can't divide out a zero  :smirk:

5 shrooms to you for posting this mind-bender :smile:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
