I figure 2+2=5 heres how...

If
a=4
b=5
c=1

then
c=b-a/(b-a)
then
c(b-a) = (b-a)^2 (^2 means squared)
then
cb-ca=b^2 -2ab=a^2/-a^2
then
cb-ca-a^2=b^2-2ab/ab
then
ab+cb-ca-a^2=b^2-ab/-cb
then
a(b-c-a)=b(b-c-a)
then
a=b and a=4 and b=5
and 2+2=4 and 4=5 then...
2+2=5 right?

If you are using Chicken Math........

2 + 2 = 2

2 Bantams = 1 Large Fowl so if you have 4 Bantams that = 2 Large Fowl

See 2 + 2 = 2 4. ### first time farmerSongster

your second step is incorrect due to parentheses placement. I don't feel like typing it out, but it is. So the whole thing doesn't make sense.

Here's another one...

I can prove that 2=1

x=y
x-y=0
2x-2y=0
2x-2y=x-y
2(x-y) = (x-y)

2(x-y) = (x-y)/x-y therefore 2=1

one more...

a=1
b=1
aa=ab
a^2 = ab
a^2-b^2=ab-b^2
(a+b)(a-b) = b(a-b)
a+b=b
that means 2=1 My teachers HATED ME!
