Theorem: All numbers are equal. Proof: Choose arbitrary a and b, and let t = a + b. Then

a + b = t
(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)
a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb
a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb
a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4
(a - t/2)^2 = (b - t/2)^2
a - t/2 = b - t/2
a = b

So all numbers are the same, and math is pointless.

Not at all your thinking capacity is low
check this LET a = 2, b = 5
Then a+b = t so t = 7
a <> b <> t
then do not use power 2 unless u tell me why are forcing to use power instead use power zero
Then a^0 - b^0 <> t (2^0-5^0 = 0 since any number power zero = 1)
so 0 <> 7
May be u have your own theory but logically and arithmetically all numbers are different.
in logic 1 OR 0 = 1, 1 AND 0 = 0 then 1 <> 0
try to think your not mathematician

Kwenye red umeongea uongo kimahesabu!
2:What is the connection between this step and above ones?
Wrong procedure cant lead to valid answer;and scientists aim at finding the
way by which theories should fit the facts and not vice versa!!!

Umeonyesha kwamba a=b, hujaonyesha kwamba any number equals any number. a and b may be the same number called by different names.

Ukisema

a + b = t, mwingine akaitafsiri hiyo kama 0.5 + 0.5 = 1, there is no reason why a should not be equal to b

as a matter of fact unaweza hata kuonyesha a = b = t = 0, and 0 + 0 = 0, hii hai contradict number theory wala kufanya hesabu zikose maana.

There was another trick like this I used to do in secondary school, I learned from one of Dr. Asimov's books. It actually shows all numbers are equal, but it uses a carefully disguised trick of division by zero, which is prohibited im math.

Hehe, safi sana hii. Umeonesha kwamba a=b but umeacha jibu lingine. Wizi/Errors wakati unapiga squareroot hapo kwenye red.

Ilibidi tupige hivi:

ALTERNATIVE I

a + b = t
(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)
a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb
a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb
a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4
(a - t/2)^2 = (b - t/2)^2
a - t/2 = +/-(b - t/2)
a-t/2= +(b-t/2) OR a-t/2= -(b-t/2)
a-t/2= b-t/2 OR a-t/2= -b+t/2
a=b OR a+b =t

So basically, given two numbers a and b, either a=b OR a !=b, in which case a+b will be equal to an arbitrary number t. (Note: Mathematically, this statement is ALWAYS true (TAUTOLOGY))

ALTERNATIVE II (KAUJANJA KAKO @ WORK)

Tukitaka tutumie kaujanja kako ka kupiga square root kiholela, mtu mwingine angefanya hivi:

a + b = t
(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)
a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb
a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb
a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4
(a - t/2)^2 = (t/2-b)^2
a - t/2 = t/2-b
a+b=t/2 +t/2
a+b=t

kama elimu ni uhai na wakati huo huo tunaambiwa kuwa maji ni uhai, je elimu ni maji? mnasemaje hapo wataalamu wa hesabu.

hamna vipera vya fasihi bali fasih imegawanyika ktk sehemu kuu 2 yaani f. Andishi na f. Simulizi na ktk hz aina tunapata tanzu kwa kila aina na kwa kila tanzu ndio tunapata vipera.
