Aside from most of that being entirely pointless...

Quote:

x+x = x

Therefore x must equal 0... and 2x would equal 0 as well.

using that 'formula' if you can call it that... you could say that any number equals any other number...

ie where it says add 3 to each side, you could add any number... say you add 4, it would be 6=5 so then you could argue that my origional question's answer would be 6... (6=5 which equals 6=2+3)

So... it doesnt make sense, lol.

Usually I tell people that I can proove that 2+2=5 and then they tall me to proove it, so I ask for a valuable item of theirs, and tell them if they want it back, then 2+2=5. it works everytime, lol.

first line gives it away

Quote:

x^2=ax

since a=x

x^2=x^2
x=x (what a discovery )

well x^2=ax is needed for the following line

cuz on the next line we basically take away itself from both sides, bringing them both to zero.

x^2-a^2 = ax-a^2

is same as

x^2-x^2 = ax-ax

so both sides equals zero... then we take those zeros, divide them by zeros and we get some crazy results

The whole point of introducing A into the equation was in hopes of throwing people of guard during -a^2 line.

Lol, it was a good try.

you still loose though.

Hmm...Hey Corybu...seeing as nobody actually answered the question correctly... here it is:
2+3=5
muahaha!

code:

%Makes variable 'answer' an integer, and equal to five (5)
var answer : int := 5
%Puts '2+3=' then the puts the answer variable, which is five (5)
put "2+3=", answer
%Puts my rants
put "Muaha, correct! OR is it? (Yes it is)"
%Makes 'answer' variable equal to 2+3
answer := 2+3
%Puts 'Answer=' then puts the new answer, which is also five (5)
put "Answer= ",answer

Woot, got it! 10 bits, or no, heh.

um, so what was the actual point of this post?

to write a code in turing to get the answer and to get some bits

sorry to bust your bubble dude buy your equation is completly wrong, if a=x then there is no way you can change the value of the variables just by manipulating by using squares and dividing

Yes, I'm pretty sure that was just a joke. Tony likes to prove 0 = 1 and stuff like that, it's fun. But we know the difference between jokes and mathematical discoveries... in fact, we knew the difference on Saturday October the fourth, in the year 2003 at 2:49 in the morning WHEN HE POSTED THAT!

I don't mean to sound pissed off but how far back did you have to go to dig up this thread?
