proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
Start with: 20 = 20
Which is the same as: 1636 = 2545
Which can also be expressed as: (2+2) 2 (9 X (2+2) = 52) 9 X 5
Add 81/4 to both sides: (2+2) 2 (9 X (2+2) + 81/4 = 52) 9 X 5 + 81/4
Rearrange the terms: ({2+2}) 9/2) 2 = (59/2) 2
Ergo: 2+2  9/2 = 5
Hence: 2 + 2 = 5

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
"(2+2) 2 (9 X (2+2) = 52) 9 X 5" , ı didn't understand what this is. I guess there is a problem with the paranthesis or? where is the equal sign? what is "52) 9 x 5"?

OK

OK

:shock:
Must have been written: (2+2)²  9x(2+2) = 5²  9x5
Add 81/4 to both sides: (2+2) 2 (9 X (2+2) + 81/4 = 52) 9 X 5 + 81/4
Must have been written: (2+2)²  9x(2+2) + 81/4 = 5²  9x5 + 81/4
Rearrange the terms: ({2+2}) 9/2) 2 = (59/2) 2
Must have been written: ((2+2)  9/2)² = (5  9/2)²
[step a]
Ergo: 2+2  9/2 = 5
Must have been written: (2+2)  9/2 = 5  9/2
[step b]
Hence: 2 + 2 = 5
Allelujah! you just discover what (1/2)² = (1/2)² but 1/2 <> 1/2 (steps a and b)

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
thank you for clearing that up.
and for figuring out how to write the little 2.2 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of G od the heavens were of old

Click on "Go Advanced" and use the special characters palette at right side.
Or press ALT 253 (this may not work according the character set selected)

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
Nice efforts, quite logical.
But i didn't understand one of its step i.e. (2+2) 2 (9 X (2+2) = 52) 9 X 5
How this comes?

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
here is one that works better:
20=20 (it is fact)
1636=2545 (1636=20,2545=20)
4^236 = 5^245 (4^2=16,5^2=25)
4^236 = 5^245
4^22.4.9/2 = 5^22.5.9/2 (2.4.9/2=36,2.5.9/2=45)
4^22.4.9/2 +(9/2)^2 = 5^22.5.9/2 +(9/2)^2 (adding both the sides (9/2)^2
[4(9/2)]^2 = [5(9/2)]^2 (let 4=a,9/2=b)
4(9/2) = 5(9/2)
4 = 5
2+2 = 5
 Post added at 11:35  Previous post was at 11:34 
here's another one
Let x be a nonzero number, and set y=x. Thus:
x = y
x^2 = xy
x^2y^2 = xyy^2
(x+y)(xy) = y(xy)
x+y = y
2y = y
2 = 1
1 = 0
Now since 2+2 = 2+2+0 and we apply the lemma proof so that 0 = 1, 2+2+0 = 2+2+1 =5
THEREFORE
2+2 = 52 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of G od the heavens were of old

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
the simplest solution to a problem is to make both sides 0 ;), that is what you're doing in line 3

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
let x=0, then x/x =1 => inf = 1

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
It's not cute ..
Square root of negative number or division by zero make your "maths" really weird ..
:wink:

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
a / a = 1, a <> 0
How about NaN / NaN = ?
NaN = Not a Number.

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
saying 0=0;
then 0*5 =0*4;
thus 4=5
things like this r complete bullshit....

Square roots do funny things.

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
the equation comes to a point where [4(9/2)]² = [5(9/2)]²
This is where the error begins, this is not equal to [4(9/2)] = [5(9/2)]
you have to use square root at both sides to simplify
√[4(9/2)]² = √[5(9/2)]²
There is a special theorem that deals with this: SQRT(a²) = a (absolute value of a)
so the above equation becomes
4(9/2) = 5(9/2)
0.5 = 0.5
0.5 = 0.5
I'm afraid the magic is lost

Re: proof that 2+2 = 5 weird
whoa what an info..but in one of the expression why do 81/4 need to be added in both sides:???:
sorry guys but im not that good in numbers the thing is i got dizzy just by seeing those(except when the figures has money related:D)No signature links allowed
