    1 = 1
    1 = (chair/chair)


    chair =/= (chair/chair)
    chair =/= 1

    OR

    1 = 1
    1 ton = wonton
    weight = soup
    scale = bowl

    Ummm...ok I'm stuck. Use the first proof.

    chair could equal chair/chair if under the domain chair = one

    Huh? I've never heard a domain described as an equation. Domain is what you plug into a function and you get the range. I'm confused.

    In any case, aren't we trying to prove that chair does NOT equal one? Unless you're using a trick where one does not equal 1, which could be clever.

    i mean that it could work if chair and one are equal, meaning that that guy's proof is invalid
    the proof that chair and one are not equal is not valid if the proof is disproven by saying that 1 = chair

    If 1 = chair, then this puzzle is impossible to solve..."who gave you permission" to assume that 1 = chair? Where did you get that from?

    EDIT - I think I get your point, despite your very poor attempt at getting it across. Are you saying I cannot assume chair =/= chair/chair because I haven't yet proved that chair =/= 1?

    By the way, I am "that guy".

    only by assuming that something is true, and then finding where it contradicts fact, can it be disproven...
    for example...
    1=2we assume this is true until we discover that this means that one would have to equal one more than itself, which we know is false...
    that's an extremely sinmple example, but you get the idea...

    frog - = tadpool


    there is a middle step

    Here goes:

    c = 299,792,458 m/s (speed of light)
    h = 6.62606896 × 10^-34 J·s (Planck's constant)
    a = 0.5291772108 × 10^-10 m (Bohr radius)
    i = (-1)^(1/2)
    r = 8.314 472 J/(molK) (gas constant)

    Therefore chair = 8.7400207226450635243266130035272 x 10^-53 i [(Jm)^2]/(molK) =/= 1

    wow, well done, i got the same answer this way.

    1=arm
    arm x force=stuff

    *inapropriate lines

    frog-time=tadpole
