That guy broke math
This is very false
@One of 300, how did they even get 2 on the last one?
@lakewood20, they tried to cancel out the a-b part of the equation and left the 2 while also saying the right part of the equation was by itself meaning it is 1. They just straight up did it wrong
@One of 300, so they used simple math concepts out of context to try to be clever?
@lakewood20, yes, you're absolutely right
@lakewood20, also I just realized I got top comment so....*waves flag of victory*. I owe it all those out there actually know how to do math!
@One of 300, 0/0 doesn't equal one and people are dumb
@Vexen77, it can't equal 1 because A and B equal each other
@One of 300, if a-b= 1 then how does 2(a-b) equal 2?
@Vexen77, it doesn't, it equals 0
@Vexen77, it doesn't. It equals 0
@Vexen77, exactly and the real answer is 0=0
@One of 300, woah. 0=0?! :OOO
@One of 300, so then this is definitely false. 2 x 0 = 0 lol not 2 and also 0 doesn't equal one
@Vexen77, mind blowing stuff am I right? Lol
They're saying that a-b is equal to 2*(a-b) which is correct because a-b is zero. So X*(a-b) still equals a-b
@FullxTilt, if you look at the bottom it's trying to say 2=1 which is can be disproven using simple math skills
@One of 300, all true :D
if a=b, then a-b=0 and 2(a-b) is 2(0) which is also 0
@One of 300, There is almost 0 mathematical logic here.
@lakewood20, basically, they took 0 divided by 0, and said that zero divided my zero is 1. That's bad math.
@lakewood20, all of the equations are equal so the 2 and 1 don't make sense
Divided by 0
*flexes in front of the mirror* I'm looking at him
@BroScience, would say perhaps you are your own...personal jesus?
@Personal Jesus, no, I'm the Brofessor but I give up my reps to you and I take shots for Satan
@Personal Jesus, Mr Gore would be proud :)
Since a=b, (a-b)=0. Therefore you have 2(0)=1(0), so the equation is true. Boom.
@atreides, ^he can be your god now OP.
@atreides, if you're trying to justify this by saying that 2*0=0 and 1*0=0 so since 0=0 its true, then that would make every number the same since anything times 0 is 0. Boom. You're wrong and this is wrong.
@atreides, so while it is true, you would have to divide by zero to get there. Therefore, while true, this impossible. The outcome is nothing.
@atreides, it's actually not true. There would need to be the condition a-b is not = 0
@MeddlingKid, I believe he was thinking that. A=b so A-a=b-a. 0=b-a. But that would not give an answer for A or B. It is just a slightly different way to state the original problem. It's not possible to get any answer at all. A=b is a statement, not a math problem.
@Its SPHERICAL, it's for large values of a and small values of b
@atreides, how come you got a bunch of downvotes when a bunch of other people said the same thing?
I started trying to solve this but then decided I don't care.
I hate when people who know nothing about maths try to act like they know all about maths
@Penitent Tangeant, aye. Like some people here in the comments
All I'm getting from this is 0=0
Doesn't work because a-b is zero so when he cancelled out a-b he divided by zero.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we don't divide by zero.
The entire "proof" starts with a=b. That means by definition a-b=0. So at the end they are basically dividing by zero, they're just being sneaky about it
Uhm, no? a - b = 0 if a=b. So it's 2(0) = 0.
They were fine until the last line, then hello math error.
Yeah its all correct until the last line... none of that means 2 = 1 lol
Someone didn't think this through
I love that everyone saw through this crap.
Replace a and b with the number 1. Then you get 2x0 = 0. Which can't be solved so the equation is false.
Your Algebra Teacher.
Where Is He Now?
Wow, 0 does equal 0!
I like how the skipped dividing by (a-b) so people who glance at it only see that it "makes" since but you can't divide by zero like everyone is saying
Since when do two variables have the same number? A never equals B
But "a" will never equal "b"
@mr froglegs25, it does right here...in the very first line.
a + a in line 2 does not equal 2a in line 3
@phyrehazurd, uh...yes it does.
@Chimera Ant, 4 + 4 = 8, 2(4) =16, 8 does not equal 16.
@phyrehazurd, 2(n) means 2 x n, not n^2
@phyrehazurd, um... 2(4) does equal 8... however, 2 to the fourth power equals 16 *hides under rock*
@Tema101, damn it yeah i fvcked that up
@phyrehazurd, lol it's all good
you do realize that A is not inherently equal to B, right?
That proves that A does not equal B and thats all
From step 5 to step 6, -2b leaves without balancing the equation.
@Majesticmoose00, b-2b=-b. It's correct. He tries to divide by 0 in 6-7 is the problem
@Pun AH64Apache, wait I'm confused. Where does he divide by 0? I know the step but it just looks like he divided a-b by a-b
@MattedPenguin, a-b is 0. Remember a=b.
The 2b just disappeared, therefore, this is SO wrong.
@WhatHeSaid, no, they didn't.
a+b-2b = a-b
@Chimera Ant, line 5 to line 6, it disappears
@WhatHeSaid, look at it again. It did not. As I said 1a+1b-2b=1a-1b
@Chimera Ant, you're right, I'm just seeing things, cuz you know, college and all
@Chimera Ant, what's worse is I'm a math major
@WhatHeSaid, lol I know that feeling
@WhatHeSaid, I'm sure you're probably further than me, but I'm in calc iii and believe I can sympathize with you. I sometimes help my cousin with algebra I and geometry stuff and it takes me a few minutes to get back into that mindset after working with 4D equations
@MeddlingKid, only in calc and analytical geometry 1, but have taken another calc class, and yea, it takes a while to go back to simpler math
@WhatHeSaid, this is wrong, but not for that reason. Take the term (a-b). If A=B, then (a-b) is equal to zero. On the last line, they divided zero by zero. (Or a-b by a-b). Zero divided by zero is undefined, not one.
Shout 0ut from the random section
Up in heaven laughing at your inferior math skills.
Yeah this doesn't work
3rd to last to 2nd to last, -2b went away on the right but the same action was not mirrored on the left
Whoaaaaa somebody learned grade nine math, how impressiveeee
This is why division by 0 is not allowed
Allow me to provide a better brain teaser. Try to spot the mistake in this argument: If we delete an open disk from the 2-Torus, then its fundamental group will be isomorphic to , where a and b are loops about the longitudinal and meridial circles and c is a loop about the boundary of the deleted disk... (More coming)
@Euler, but also note that our space deformation retracts onto the 1-skeleton of the torus, and thus the homomorphism induced by the inclusion of that space is an isomorphism, so that is isomorphic to . Yet, this implies that c must homotopic to a constant loop, which means that is ZxZ. Yet, is the free group on 2-generators, which is not isomorphic to ZxZ. So somewhere, we have a contradiction or this argument is invalid (it is invalid, try to spot the error).
@Euler, it seems that funny pics doesn't like me using carrot brackets... It deleted every instance of the group presentations (a,b,c|[a,b]c) and (a,b) where the parents are replaced by carrot brackets. My apologies.
the 3rd line should be 2a=ab
The never canceled the -2b correctly
I mean the fourth step*
Like from the third step on is algebraically wrong
Plug in a 2
Whoever did this math is dumb. That's all I gotta say
Literally none of this makes any sense. He is literally pulling variables outta his äss.
Is this Teriology in action? (Teriology is Terrence Howard's solution to math, look it up to be amused)
Dis maek no sens
They would both be zero
This... this doesn't work. Is this that fabled new math?
This equation only works because it allows us to know that in this particular situation a=b but that's not always the case in other cases a=b=c=f so the equation fvcks off in all kinds of directions. Using variables in math to confuse people is the easiest thing to do, try proving your point with arc lengths and then you can talk shjt.
How about I don't become an engineer and I just sell crack instead?
@bootyquake, nah. Just try to plug in a number (any number at all). You'll see why this math doesn't work.
A and b = 2 the last line doesn't make sence though
@Bugglegum22, both a and b can be any real number, aslong as a = b
So is this the equation for marriage?
Let's just say no...... yes let's go with that and you know just back off and chill
OP couldn't math either
I don't know, I can't math.
