Howdy, In this post we will look at a mathematical fallacy that enables us to you prove 1 = 2? We will in fact prove that 1 = 2 using a series of steps, one of which has a flaw. Your task is to identify the step that contains the flaw. Check the video below […]
Given a number $x$, can you determine if it is divisible by a number say $y$ with out even performing the actual division. Divisibility rules are quite handy when you want to test for divisibility of numbers even before you can actual divide the number. For instance, to check if a number is divisible by 7, […]
