it's not true. the i one is fallacy due to square roots of a negative number

7. Outkast3r09

and joe i'm not sure how you get x+x+x+x+x = squared

8. joemath314159

its always fun to try and find the mistakes lol.

9. Outkast3r09

well everyone thinks that the i one hold true

10. Outkast3r09

but it doesn't

11. Outkast3r09

it has to do with only being able to split positive integers of a square root into two

12. Outkast3r09

square root properties only work when a>0

13. joemath314159

indeed. :)

14. Outkast3r09

so no... no matter how many times your teachers and students tell you.. 1=2 there will be a fallacy in their work orrrr.. a fallacy within the theorem.. but usually they will restrict it as the people who wrote them were absolute geniuses

Wow..Ya'll are way to smart for me..only highschool..lol

16. Outkast3r09

i used to watch my teacher do things like this in highschool and i just thought wow my teacher just proved something wrong... really he was trying to make someone stand up and say he was wrong

By the way, 1 does not equal. 2. 'i' is being used as a number, of which it is not. 1=2 is an 'imaginary' answer so to speak.
