### study = failed :P

study = not failed ⇒ 1
not study = failed ⇒ 2

equation 1 + equation 2 :
study + not study = not failed + failed
study [ 1 + not ] = failed [ not + 1 ]

divide [ 1 + not ] from each side :

study = failed

so everybody don't study from this day :P

i hope you like it ...

### Re: study = failed :P

However...

study + not study = not failed + failed
not study - not failed = failed - study
not (study - failed) = failed - study
not = (failed - study)/(study - failed)
not = -(study - failed)/(study - failed) = -1

Substituting this value into [1 + not] gives 0, meaning that you cannot divide by it.
Proof unproven!

So, yeah, go back to studying now.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

∴ We don't apply math to conceptual ideas.  QED.

### Re: study = failed :P

I'm sorry. I couldn't resist pointing that out. Besides, it turns out that we were both right.

I was thinking about it more, and my disproof relies on dividing by (study - failed), but according to your proof, study = failed, so study - failed = 0, meaning that my disproof was wrong.

So, basically, the disproof only works if we assume that what we are disproving is true, which isn't allowed. But the same can be said about your proof.

But just by looking at it we can tell that not = ± 1, meaning that study can equal either of failed or not failed and you can just manipulate it to suit your own purposes.

Sorry, I'm rambling again...
