Did you know that 1=2? Here's the "proof"
Can we agree that 1-1=0? Good. Let's set up an algebraic (like that word?) expression. In this case an equation. Here it is: 1(1-1)=2(1-1). Of course you'll remember from high school algebra that you can do just about anything you like to an equation , that is add to it, subtract from it, multiply it, or divide it as long as you do exactly the same thing on BOTH sides of the = (equal) sign. Since that's mathematically correct, I'm going to divide both sides of the equation by (1-1). When I do this, I'm left with 1=2. Do you know what the fallacy is in this "proof"? Math majors and minors PLEASE do not answer this. I know you know. That's enough for me. What I want to see if you NON-math people know what I've done wrong. Answer below.
