Smart Fallacies: i squared equals to 1, 1 equals to 2 and 3

This mathematical fallacy is due to a simple simple assumption, that $ -1=\dfrac{-1}{1}=\dfrac{1}{-1}$ . Proceeding with $ \dfrac{-1}{1}=\dfrac{1}{-1}$ and taking square-roots of both sides, we get: $ \dfrac{\sqrt{-1}}{\sqrt{1}}=\dfrac{\sqrt{1}}{\sqrt{-1}}$ Now, as the Euler’s constant $ i= \sqrt{-1}$ and $ \sqrt{1}=1$ , we can have $ \dfrac{i}{1}=\dfrac{1}{i}… Continue reading

0.999…=1?

There is a clinical fallacy which proves 0.999… =1. First we assume the repeating decimal n=0.9999…                      …(i) Then, 10n= 9.9999…                      …(ii) Subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii) we get 9n=9 Thus, n=1. It proves the post title. But how is it possible? Two different real… Continue reading
