Can U Prove 3=2??
This seems to be an anomaly or whatever u call in mathematics.
It seems, Ramanujam found it but never disclosed it during his life time and
that it has been found from his dairy.
See this illustration:
6 = 6
915 = 410
adding 25/4 to both sides:
915+25/4 = 410+25/4
Changing the order
9+25/415 = 4+25/410
(this is just like a square + b square  two a b = (ab)square.)
Here a = 3, b=5/2 for L.H.S and a =2, b=5/2 for R.H.S.
So it can be expressed as follows:
(35/2)(35/2) = (25/2)(25/2)
Taking positive square root on both sides:
3  5/2 = 2  5/2
3 = 2 ????????

Guys,
Check this cool puzzle.....
A man wanted to enter an exclusive club but did not know the password that was required. He waited by the door and listened.
A club member knocked on the door and the doorman said, "twelve." The member replied, "six " and was let in.
A second member came to the door and the doorman said, "six." The member replied, "three" and was let in.
The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said ,"ten" and the man replied, "five."
But he was not let in. What should have he said?
My answer will be posted later...

For the second puzzle:
Beware intelligentsia, do not tell the right answer...
For the first one(supposedly "hidden" by Ramunajam):
I do not intend to become Rama...but.......
Integers can be expressed as variables.
Ex. 100 can be expressed as A
200 can be expressed as B
300 can be expressed as C .......and so on...
But 100 is never equal to A
200 is never equal to B
300 is never equal to C...... because a constant will not be equal to a variable.
Mathematics law(as if I have studied ! !) will not allow one to equate a constant to a variable.
9+25/415 = 4+25/410
can be can be
expressed as expressed as
(ab)sq. (ab)sq.
but is equal to but is equal to
(35/2)sq. (25/2)sq.
We can "express"
(35/2)sq. = (ab)sq. ...... (1) as good as 100 = (A)sq.
(25/2)sq. = (ab)sq. ...........(2) as good as 121 = (A)sq.
(1) and (2) are two separate expressions.
You can't say "Taking out the square" and write "10=11" followed by a punctuation as if it were a puzzle "??"
Ramanujam would not even think of this as a puzzle....why would he answer it?
I just became a ruminant for the past few minutes...junk stuff.
