Is it true?

Level pending

I can prove why 1 = 2

  • Lets say y = x
  • Multiply through by x xy = x2
  • Subtract y2 from each side xy - y2 = x2 - y2
  • Factor each side y(x-y) = (x+y)(x-y)
  • Divide both sides by (x-y) y = x+y
  • Divide both sides by y y/y = x/y + y/y
  • And so... 1 = x/y + 1
  • Since x=y, x/y = 1 1 = 1 + 1
  • And so... 1 = 2

How is this possible ?
