2.4 rounded down is 2 4.8 rounded up is 5
Now that you understand this, read the equation. Here is the equation: 2.4 2.4=4.8 Or 2 2=5 Oh and I have a PhD so I know what I'm talking about. 2+2=4. That is correct. 2+2=5 is incorrect, because you're rounding another number to 2. for example, 2.4 is rounded to 2, and if you multiply 2.4 by 2, then you get 4.8, which is rounded to 5. now, you're wrong, because this is being rounded. 2+2 does not equal 5, 5 is simply a close number to the correct one, that's what a rounded number is. something close to the correct number, an estimate. So no, 2+2 does not equal 5. it is close to 5, but it doesn't equal 5. 

Many mathematicians use what I use, for example; pi is mostly used rounded in equations. 2+2=4 is correct and 2+2=5 is correct too. I have a PhD so I know what in talking about.
First of all, i have to ask you to stop repeating the fact that you have a PhD all over your profile. It's on everything you write. We get it, you have a PhD, but that doesn't mean you're right. it doesn't prove anything in a argument. now, 2+2=4 is correct. 2+2=5 is not correct, see, you're ROUNDING. When you round, you're taking a number and you're looking at the closest number between a scale of 110. for example, you can round 29 to 30. or 23 to 20. see, if i add 23+29, does it equal 59? No. it equals 52. 2.4 + 2.4= 4.8, but that doesn't mean tht 2+2=5. When you round, you are making it easier to add by making a number either 0 or 10. but when you round, you don't get an exact number, meaning it's not correct. so no, 2+2=4. Not 5. 

Mathematically speaking with a PhD by my calculations and research I have come up with this equation.
4W22;9/2X00;(4W22;92)(49/2)" since 4W22;92<0 Wow. Okay. Look, I will prove that 2+2=5 is incorrect by saying the following: If you have 2 apples in one hand, and 2 in the other, how many apples do you have? If you got 5, vote for PRO. If you got 4, vote for me.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct Pro showed that he was not taking the debate seriously, like in round three when he wrote a bogus mathematical expression.
Arguments Pro had a flawed case involving rounding numbers. Con pointed out the flaws in Pro's logic and presented his own logical cases as to why 2+2=4. I've got 4 apples.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's appeal to authority fails. If he had argued significant figures, maybe he would have gotten further; Con correctly points out that Pro's "argument" relies on rounding, which is inaccurate. Arguments to Con.
4 W22; 9 / 2 X00; ( 4 W22; 9 2) ( 4  9 / 2 ) " since 4 W22; 9 2
But 2 can equal any other number you choose, e.g. 14 equals 2 on a clock so 14 + 2 = 16 or 4.
