a = x            [true for some a's and x's]
a+a = a+x          [add a to both sides]
2a = a+x          [a+a = 2a]
2a-2x = a+x-2x       [subtract 2x from both sides]
2(a-x) = a+x-2x       [2a-2x = 2(a-x)]
2(a-x) = a-x          [x-2x = -x]
2 = 1            [divide both sides by a-x]

Careful, I recall a math professor in my differential equations class or
maybe it was higher throwing a proof up on the board showing that 1 + 1
!= 2
and it wasn't a numberical base trick....

I didn't follow through it, I just closed my eyes and shook my head and
thought forward to my communications class as the sights were easier on
the
eyes...

I still wonder why I went into a field with such a high ratio of men to
women... :)

999,998 + 2 = 1,000,000, not 100,000. ;-)
