errrmmmm, 2 is equal to 1/2,

Quote from: Thebox on 30/03/2015 19:26:04errrmmmm, 2 is equal to 1/2,If you think 2 = 1/2, you wipe out an awful lot of mathematics, but that is something that automatically comes out of the unnecessary dogma that Einstein shoehorned into SR.

The thing with numbers , is that numbers are not real, and it is down to interpretation. Example I have 1 object, I chop it into half , I now have 2 objects.1/2 = 2

Numbers are real enough for that calculation were they not? And that is the exact reason we use them, to calculate and give substance and meaning to measurements.Mr. Box,.................if I may be so bold, you say the most ignorant things of any member at this forum.

1 divided by 2 equals how many different parts?

absolutely[/i] no grasp of mathematics.

Example I have 1 object, I chop it into half , I now have 2 objects.1/2 = 2You evidently don't understand the mathematical proportion. Briefly, the proportion is a simple algebraic function that can establish equalities. Example:1/2 = 2/4 or 3/6 or 5/10, so and so forth.The proportion is one of the most basic and useful mathematical tools science has and is very, very real indeed.1/2 = 2 is a false and impossible conclusion and the absolute dumbest statement I've ever seen posted here at TNS!How are you to understand physics when you can't even understand elementary level math?

I have no proof and not enough knowledge for me to say hey science i am correct and the world is wrong.Yes the calculation worked but that does not make numbers any more real. Number 1 itself does not exist as an entity, the number 1 replaces something in representation.
