A defining features of learning mathematics is being able to read, write, and discover proofs. A proof is a method of communicating a mathematical truth to another person who speaks the "language" of mathematics. It's a way of showing whether a statement made is absolutely true or false.

I recently came across a fallacious proof attempting to show that the integer one equals two – shown are the steps to accomplish this. Common sense dictates that this is impossible, but the proof is somewhat convincing to the untrained eye. However, most people with basic algebraic knowledge should be able to pick out the mistake, so take a minute or two to see if you can identify the incorrect step. If you're stuck, don't give up so quickly! It's easier than you think.

A solution to the problem is provided in the video linked below.

It is very easy to prove 1 = 2, but we all know it is wrong. But, most of us don’t know how to prove it wrong. if you use different assumptions then 1 is not equal to 2.

Oh, of course, this is not true if you know mathematics. Not everyone is given this, far from everyone. I'm a math teacher and I know what I'm talking about. My son doesn't like math by the way and found math problems writing service, he uses https://edubirdie.com/math-problems-writing-service as I guessed. For some reason, he does not ask me for help and does not want me to explain to him. He says that he is not interested and I will not force him to teach.
