Didn't he multiply (a+b) by 0, and b by 0 and then claim in the next step to still have "a+b = b"? What he should have had was "0 = 0". But what do I know? |

Actually, by solving the equation generally instead of specifically, he would divide both sides by (a-b) which means, in fact, he divided both sides by zero. However, solving this specifically, you would be correct. |

So, at the end of the day and solving generally, do we have this douche to blame for all the "Oh shit you divided by zero" posts??? |

No, Aaron! You fail! The third step is to add "-b^2" in the LHS and RHS. The problem is in the fifth step (division by a-b=0). |

there is absolutely no error in this problem. he created like factors on each, distributed them and factored then cancelled them out on each side of the problem. the rest was substitution and simple math. duh |
