More fun:
0 = 0
=0+0+0+0+0+...
=(11)+(11)+(11)+(11)+...
=11+11+11+11+...
= 1+ 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 +...
= 1 + (1+1) + (1+1) + (1+1) +...
= 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + ...
= 1 + 0
= 1
Therefore 0 = 1, Q.E.D.
Where's the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't need help, I just like to post fun things while I wait for other stuff. Can you find the problem in this reasoning? (there has to be a problem, or else all numbers equal each other and cease to have meaning!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am not sure that can done or not because we dont know how many how many terms are there in 0+0+0+0+0... Infinity is unreachable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let there are n terms in 0+0+0+0+... Then Now, let 0=(11) Then (11)+(11)+... 11+11+11... Now this will have 2n terms........ and 2n will be even numbers. Now, 11+11+1... =1(11)(11)+... If u will group that like that. and to get 1 there must be odd number of terms But we know it has 2n terms which is even. Thus, it cannot be 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How about \[0 = \sum_{0}^{\infty}0\]is fine \[0=\sum_{0}^{\infty}(1  1)\]is fine But \[0 = 11+11+11... = \sum_{0}^{\infty}(1)^{n}\] is not fine ...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(11)+(11)+(11)+(11)+... \ne1 + (1+1) + (1+1) + (1+1) +..\]Evidently. But why? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandi's_series http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eilenberg%E2%80%93Mazur_swindle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1error is from line four to line five a term is missing =11+11+11+11+... = 1+ 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 +1 + 1 ...
