I asked my friend, who is a mathematician.
This was his reply, "Error is in line 5. There's a sad face there. It should be a happy face."
I don't know if he was kidding or not.
It is because the two sides of the equation are not equal.
My friend said your comment was useless... lol... although he said "kind of" probably to soften the blow.
Good for your friend, so nice of you to share that.
My comment was correct, though.
lol. Im sure he didn't mean it unkindly... he's Canadian. They don't know how to be unkind. Im sure it was just an observation.
But, I'm sure you did, or else you wouldn't have even posted it.
Yes, I was poking you a bit. I doubt you burst into tears over it, or did you? If so, I'm sorry, if not... then wasn't that fun?
No, I don't burst into tears from your insults and gossiping on these forums, I actually feel very sorry for you.
Considering one of your old friends has not been around, it is nice to see you found a new one.
Ive been terribly lonely.

Oh, ok... ignore the last post... here is the actual deal.
"My actual solution would be to replace line 6 with
=>(-1/2)^2 = (1/2)^2
=>1/4 = 1/4"
Now tell me it's right so I can move on!
line 5: (1-3/2)² = (2-3/2)² correct
=> (-0,5)² = (+0,5)²
=> 0,25 = 0,25
line 6 game over :-)
however what is possible:
=> 1 = (0,5)²/(-0,5)²
=> 1 = (0,5/-0,5)²
=> 1 = (-1)²
Last line; one does not equal two. Unless it's not mathematics but some sort of heart-felt philosophy. Looks like mathematics to me, but I'm no Einstein.
replace line 5 with:
=>|1–3/2 |= |2–3/2| or
=>-|1–3/2| = -|2–3/2|
When you took the sqr root of each side in the preceeding step to produce this one, you assigned a negative value to one side and a positive to the other. As that function has two possible answers, you must specify which one is applicable.
Barack Obama = man
Nasrullah Idris = man
Barack Obama = 2
Nasrullah Idris = 1
man = x
2 = 1
Pshaw. We all know he's actually one of the reptilian overlords who will enslave us and charter us to their home planet to mine gold for them until we die.
It's true! I saw an image of him on my old TV and part of his skin was green, so it must be true!
That's not math. That's bull shit like the anything equals anything logical fallacy....which is essentially what you're using if you randomly equal anything to a mathmatical symbol and then treat it like math.
That was the 2nd post.
Oh Sam Azgor! Where are you?
For this, we are not talking a numeric value, but the status of numbers.

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably because I've spent a lifetime being flattered by others only to find that they wanted...

As I'm sure everybody already knows, there is something of a contention between two branches of mathematics - Applied Mathematics and Pure Mathematics. For those who thought that math was just math, here is the distinction: Applied Math involves, as might be expected, the applications...
