3. cool you guys really know yer stuff   Reply With Quote

4. Can anyone prove that 2+2=4?  Reply With Quote

yes coz if you got 2 apples in front of you then you add another 2 apples then count them all you get 4 apples (its right coz ive just testedt it )  Reply With Quote

6. Yeah that's great with apples
but what happens when you use peaches?

then the math gets fuzzy cause peaches have fuzz on them.  Reply With Quote

7. true but if you wash the peaches then it all becomes as clear as the water used to wash them   Reply With Quote

8. x^2 = x*x = x+x+x+x+...(x times)

d/dx (x^2) = d/dx (x+x+x+...)
=> 2x = 1+1+1+...(x times)
=> 2x = x
=> 2x / x = x / x
=> 2 = 1

10. x^2 = x*x = x+x+x+x+...(x times)

d/dx (x^2) = d/dx (x+x+x+...)
=> 2x = 1+1+1+...(x times)
=> 2x = x
=> 2x / x = x / x
=> 2 = 1
HAHA! CAN'T DEVIDE BY X!!! WHAT IF X IS 0?!
You can prove that sheep can fly if you devide by zero!
And btw-

from d/dx (x^2) = d/dx (x+x+x+...) to 2x = 1+1+1+...(x times), something doesn't make any sense...

d/dx (x^2) = d/dx (x+x+x+...) /(d/dx)
x^2 = (x+x+x+...) /x <-- which CAN'T be done!
x = 1+1+1+...(x times) <-- now that makes sense!
x = x

but how did you get to:
2x= 1+1+1+...(x times)??  Reply With Quote

It uses derivatives (calculas)

x^2 = x*x = x+x+x+x+...(x times)
// x squared is x*x,
// 2*x is x+x(2 times)
// 3*x is x+x+x (3 times)
// so x*x is x+x+x...(x times)

d/dx (x^2) = d/dx (x+x+x+...)
//take the derivative of both sides
// derivative of x squared is 2*x
// derivative (x+x+x+...) is
// derivative of x + derivative of x + ...
// the derivative of x is 1, so derivative of x+x+x+...(x times) is
// 1+1+1+...(x times) = x

=> 2x = 1+1+1+...(x times)
=> 2x = x // true, only if x is zero, but x is a variable, it could have been 2, 3, 4...
=> 2x / x = x / x // so if x != 0
=> 2 = 1 // then 2 = 1

The trick isn't in the division, that actual problem lies in the fact that you can only take the derivative of a continuous expression (in this case), but here, it's implied, but not directly stated, that x must be a non-negative integer. If x = 0.5, then x^2 = x*x = x+x+x+...(x times) = 0.5 + 0.5 + ... (0.5 times) doesn;t make much sense. So x is not continuous and therefore the derivative cannot be taken giving us the falacy in the argument.

12. It uses derivatives (calculas)
So that's what it is...
I didn't know that it is written like that...
Sothat DOES makes sense, sorta... If X is an absolute number, and not 0...  Reply With Quote

13. all this fuss for 2+2 lol   Reply With Quote

14. That is a cool trick yasunobu13. I'll remember that one.  Reply With Quote
