proof that 2=2.82 thus that algebra has a huge faulti have proven not that 1=2 but that 2=3.41 i am only 16 but im pretty sure there are no faults in this. what i did and expalnations on how are written below Last edited by saundo (20091021 23:44:46) #2 20091021 20:19:53
Re: proof that 2=2.82 thus that algebra has a huge faultthe problem is between line4 and 5. You cannot distribute the square root, i mean, To my knowledge there is no way to decompose a square root #3 20091021 22:26:06

for some reason the brackets did not come up properly #5 20091123 02:51:16

Re: proof that 2=2.82 thus that algebra has a huge faultHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20100518 06:32:52
Re: proof that 2=2.82 thus that algebra has a huge faultHi Saundo Can feel it coming together.. Slowly but Surely #8 20101027 13:41:31

algebra wins, but geometry pwns >:]
