does 4 = 3 ?

Filed under: engineers — toobstar @ 3:03 am

a + b = c4a – 3a + 4b – 3b = 4c – 3c

4a + 4b – 4c = 3a + 3b – 3c

4(a + b – c) = 3(a + b – c)

4 = 3

Do you know the answer?  Interesting…

  1. dude, a+b-c = 0… you can’t divide by (a+b-c=0) on both sides!!

  2. yer i missed the first line which probably makes it more clear what the actual question is. And correct, cant divide by 0… Not completely obvious though!
