im(POSSIBLE)!!??

when I was in class 7 one of my teachers asked me that if 2=0 possible or not . Obviously the answer that came into my mind was NO! But sirs next words really made me think about how much right my answer is!! He said that he thinks there are no rules in Maths so why it cant be like2/2=0!? Since then i have no idea about sirs solution and i dont know that if it is right or wrong SO PLEASE CAN ANYONE TELL ME??

Who says there are no rules in maths?

Maths is a subject with rules but no goals.

Ofcourse, 2/2 = 0! =1 But it has nothing to do with 2 =0 (indeed not true). See 0! is totally different from' 0 the number 'actually. In other words if I explain you the meaning of 0! it would be : the ways of arranging 0 things which is definitely one way i.e. no way. Hence you cannot compare 0 & 0!

2 is not equal to 0, but if your teacher was joking then it could be,

2 = 0 (get the average of the 2 numbers) 2 - 1 = 0 - 1 (subtract the average) 1 = -1 (square both sides) 1 = 1

haha, but it really is not possible ;) Emmanuel Jesus Estallo · 2 years, 11 months ago

The simple way -Firstly 2 is not equal to 0 But as your teacher said that there is no rule is maths ...he is heck If you prove 2 = 0 you did like 2 / 2 = 0 This is wrong whenever anything is done in any equation ,It is done in both side.(but why I am talking about this) Ohh sorry.we know 2 * 1 = 2 then,How 2 * 0 = 2 will be...
