Hm, it is valid for x = 1 as bot not above?
Now I see it, the number of terms should be the double in the first summation than in the other.
hey all of u are play tricks any one can see it and say its correct but its sure wrong first 2=1 u cant divide by a variable number and 1=-1 there are 2 solutions 1 refused which is 1=-1 and the other 1=1 and u cant take it with another way which is the square of square root is the moduls so |-1|=1 and if we are talking about tricks could any one prove that 0=-1 and 927=23 ????

As it is very few people reading your post will have any idea what you are
Also read the site rules they are the second item on the first dark tool bar on
every page on this site. In particular don't use text speak abreviations.
heh, i didnt think my silly math proof i posted over 2 years agao would turn into a "i know how to make things that obviously are not equal equal" thread.
you get funny stuff like that all the time. x-1 = x+1 try to get the x's on one side, it wont work. you should just say "No Solution" rather than bragging about what you can appear true..
though i like the 1 = -1 one, that was nice.
Everything is fine until the step marked in red. The problem with your “proof” is in writing for the imaginary number i. The square-root function is only defined for ; for negative x, it makes no sense at all!
The imaginary number i is defined by . It is not denoted by !
In fact, it is my opinion that writing (as you did there) is just as mathematically idiotic and meaningless as writing !
We extend the reals by introducing an ideal element with the property that
then it is not important that .
(note that the above is the method of getting to a definition of complex numbers is not unique, nor necessarily the best method).
And even if it was meant to be taken seriously, I would think we would welcome when people try to disprove mathematics as if their proof is correct, then we have something we really need to think about, and if it's false, then math has stood up to one more proof, it's nature of being objectively true shines through.
If questioning something isn't allowed, then that thing isn't worth believing in because it hasn't tested or verified, it hasn't stood up to any criticism. Math however, does stand up to such criticism, which is why it shouldn't be discouraged, every failed attempt to disprove it only proves it further.
This is Mine 89th Post!!!
the purpose of this thread is to provide "proofs" that seem to prove something contradictory, but is invalid because of one or more invalid steps. and so, it is an exercise to identify what steps are incorrect. hence, i do not think anyone here actually believes the "proof" that they have posted, they are just teasing. so perhaps calling someone retarded for posting is a bit harsh...but i can't stay mad at Jane
