Yay math humor!

With the following assumptions:

0 x 1 = 0

0 x 2 = 0

The following must be true:

0 x 1 = 0 x 2

Dividing by zero gives:

0/0 x 1 = 0/0 x 2

Simplified, yields:

1 = 2

No, I know that the roof is missing and you can see the stars because the roof is missing. I just don't get the joke in not having a roof

Yes, but you can't divide by zero. Even when the numerator is zero.Let's try another one:

Let's try this one.

This can't happen in real life because if x=y, x-y=0 and you can't divide by zero.x=y

multiply by x:

x^2 = xy

subtract y^2:

x^2 - y^2 = xy - y^2

Factor both sides:

(x+y)(x-y) = y(x-y)

Divide by (x-y):

x+y=y

x=y, so substitue y for x:

y+y=y

2y = y

divide by y and we get:

2=1

every request to his wife by endearing terms, calling her Honey, My Love,

Darling, Sweetheart, Pumpkin, etc.

Bernie looked at Morris and remarked, "That is really nice. After all these

years that you have been married, you keep calling your wife those pet names."

Morris hung his head and whispered, "To tell the truth, I forgot her name

three years ago."

Wasn't a riddle. It was a simple joke that doubled in purpose to also state why we don't divide by 0.

Yay math humor!

0 x 1 = 0

0 x 2 = 0

The following must be true:

0 x 1 = 0 x 2
