Wrong! 0 1 2 3 4 5 is right! Why?

0+5=5
1+4=5
2+3=5
3+2=5
4+1=5
0+5=5

I meant all positive numbers!
1.1+3.9
1.01+3.99
1.001+3.999

And go on forever.

#### Deoxy99

Oh! I meant no fractions or decimals!

#### Deep2

Oh dear what shall we do!

#### Deoxy99

No in the problem!

#### Deoxy99

PROBLEM! 1/2+x=y

y=5/6

X cannot equal 1/2 1/4 1/6 1/8

or any of those with varying numbers in the first number.

PROBLEM! 1/2+x=y

y=5/6

X cannot equal 1/2 1/4 1/6 1/8

or any of those with varying numbers in the first number.

x = 1 ÷ 3

Okay...you are observing a box that looks like it is 75% off the building but not tilting! You run up to fix it! And now you see it moving! Why could that be?

#### fireball

Find the slope of the graph of y = (x-3)^1/2 when x = 2.

Are you answering the problem? That problem is not algebra! It is a puzzle I made up!
