Re: 1+1=1ok then, how about this false proof The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #9 20060506 14:06:17
Re: 1+1=1
There lies the mistake. then or It would not be right to say a=b. When square root is being taken on both sides of an equation, the plus or minus/minus or plus sign has an important role to play, it cannot be overlooked. When you had taken the square roots of the LHS and the RHS in steps 2, 3, you have taken only the positive values. Remember square root on 1 is not +1 alone, it is ±1. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #10 20060506 17:37:17
Re: 1+1=1Good explamation. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #11 20060506 18:28:32

Re: 1+1=1Correct Of course there will always be something wrong as 1 cannot equal 2 #14 20060507 10:08:35
Re: 1+1=1We had another collection of false proofs somewhere here  maybe I should collect them and make a page about it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #15 20060510 10:03:19
Re: 1+1=11 will not equal 2 as long as we judge them to be different. igloo myrtilles fourmis
