It may sound somewhat paradoxical, but we are going to crumble the foundations of mathematics by demonstrating that 1 + 1 is equal to 3.

We begin with an unquestionable equality:

We add both members of equality the same amount:

We can transform the previous expression into:

If we look, we see that we have on both sides the result of squareing a binomial, so we can simplify:

If we extract the square root of both members we have that:

Or what is the same

That is:

How is it possible?


The error is that of the expression:

It was deduced that

Although the squares are the same, the first powers are not identical, for example:
but -5 is not equal to 5.

    I'm sorry, but, in my opinion, mistakes are made. I propose to discuss it.

    I can not participate now in discussion - there is no free time. But I will return - I will necessarily write that I think.

    You are wrong. I am able to prove it. Write to me in PM, discuss it.
