### 4=5

I have a fun proof that for equals five, made by mister uthis, I belive 20=20 36-16=45-25 (multiply by negitive one) 16-36=25-45 (add 81/4 to both sides) 16-36+81/4=25-45+81/4 (simplify) 4^2-36+(9/2)^2=5^2-45+(9/2)^2 (reduce 36 & 45 to factors (and a fraction)) 4^2-(2*4*9/2)+(9/2)^2=5^2-(2*5*9/2...
