That's false!, since this logic a + b = t(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)

a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb

a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb

a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4

(a - t/2)^2 = (b - t/2)^2

a - t/2 = b - t/2

a = b

gives false results there must be an error in it because we know that two things will never equal 3 things thats impossible. 2 is not 3, you know this. A person who did this proof should have doubted his logic because it produce the obviously false results.

What do you say?
