Subject: Algebra proof
I once saw an algebra problem that contained a subtle error. Because of the error, the problem appeared to prove that one plus one was not two. I teach in the County Jail and I wanted to use this problem not only to teach algebra but also to show them that what you think is so, isn't necessarily so. Thank you, Doug
