    How do you do the division of zero that explains why 1+1=not 2

    Does "1+1=not2" read, "one plus one does not equal two"? That must be rather difficult to prove won't it?

    Yeah is hard to prove but why do they say that 1+1=0 using division of zero

    You are looking for the mathematical fallacy of course.

    Here are some slightly more complex fallacies from UofT.

    Wouldn't dividing something by zero just be that number? You're dividing it by nothing...therefor it should stay as the same number.

    No, it is actually an undefined operation in normal maths.
    It gives too many answers.
