    since x=a x-a =0 one cannot divide by 0

    so... (100-100)/(100-100) is not defined 10^2-10^2/(10(10-10)) is not defined (10+10)(10-10)/(10(10-10)) is not defined ...cancelling (10-10) 10+10/10 is not defined 20/10=2 is not defined????

    by cancelling 10-10=0 you are removing the part that was not defined so the part which was defined, remains, which is 2=2
