# One Is Equal To Two!!!

## One Is Equal To Two!!!

One is Equal to two, heres the proof, and i explained what you do inbetween steps

a = b

Times both sides by a

a^2 = a*b

subtract b^2 (b to the power of 2) from both sides

a^2-b^2 = a*b-b^2

apply the distributive law to both sides

(a+b)(a-b) = b(a-b)

divide both sides by (a-b)

(a+b) = b

substitute all a's for b's (remember, if a = b you can do this)/

a+a = a

regroup the two a's in the left side, and rename it 2a

2a = a

divide both sides by a

2 = 1

Proven

a = b

Times both sides by a

a^2 = a*b

subtract b^2 (b to the power of 2) from both sides

a^2-b^2 = a*b-b^2

apply the distributive law to both sides

(a+b)(a-b) = b(a-b)

divide both sides by (a-b)

(a+b) = b

substitute all a's for b's (remember, if a = b you can do this)/

a+a = a

regroup the two a's in the left side, and rename it 2a

2a = a

divide both sides by a

2 = 1

Proven

nicely done

I can see how that works.

But in algebra you wouldn't label 1 both a and b

so... it that respect it doesn't work.

Still clever though.

Division by Zero. Fail.

a+a can't equal a unless a = 0.
