2 = 1?
|Coworker tripped me up with this one, see if you can spot the fallacy.|
For another math puzzle see "365 Project: 38 - Unbalanced Square Root (2-7)".
Evaluating Diverging Series?
|Then he went on further to show proofs that these diverging series evaluate.|
I thought he was playing tricks again, but sure enough, the proofs are listed in the math communities.
My mind has been blown. I may never sleep right again at night.
Answer: just in case you didn't spot the fallacy, (a - b) = 0, so the cancellation would be dividing both sides by zero.
(a-b) = 0
So you can't "divide both sides" by (a-b) and have it work - you are dividing by zero
You got it :-)
