**“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”**

Just how good are you at maths?

I’m not talking about algebra, or trigonometry, or calculus, or anything complicated. I’m just talking about simple addition, subtraction and multiplication.

.

For example,

1 + 1 = 2 so far so good.

6 + 4 = 10 okay

6 + 5 = 11 yes

64 + 65 = 129 right

.

Let’s try some simple multiplication, for example,

8 times 8 = 64 yes, correct

5 times 13 = 65 yes, also correct

therefore

(8 x 8) = (5 x 13) or 64 – 65 = 0 or 64 = 65

WHAT!!! No that’s wrong, 64 cannot equal 65.

.

Really? So how does this work then?

The hole in the bottom one is the same as the extra one on top. Loved these!

But why is there an extra one on the top or one less on the bottom? We need to know these things!!!

Glad you enjoyed them 🙂

Because there is

Ah, of course, why did I not see it?

Ok.Maths was never my forte,but this was darned interesting!

Glad you liked them.

I am so confused…no not really these are cool

They are pretty good, glad you liked them.

I think…therefore I am confused! You CAN be serious!

Oh yes, but thankfully not too often. 😉

You’re sick. I hate smart guys.

Time for some rum & raisin ice cream 🙂

Just the rum will do.

Good thinking!

I was always terrible at maths! Addition, subtraction, multiplication & division OK – anything else ZZZZZZZZ . . .

You’re not the only one, I think a lot of people feel like that particularly the way it is taught in schools.

Thanks for letting me know how stupid I was with the blog links! I have fixed them and have no idea how I did that as I remember going to each blog for the link, I told you I wasn’t good at math.

You really do fight against stupidity!!! Thanks!!!!

I love mind bending maths… it screws with the best of them…

It certainly does. These are pretty good.

It starts at a far more basic point – 1 doesn’t equal 1. But I think I’ve used that before…. 😉

Yes, the whole thing is a big con!
