 Pro 2+2 can be five, I've got a very good explanationReport this Argument Con When you add two numbers, and both of them are even numbers, the sum has to be an even number. Plus, it's the basis of mathematics addition. If you can legitimately prove 2+2=5, you're obviously doing something wrong.Report this Argument Pro the next one will be very seriousReport this Argument Con Ok I win cool.Report this Argument

If y=4, then for the entire problem, y=4. As a result, if x+x=y, and x=2, and y=4, then 2+2=4.

On the bright side, you didn't lose.

An intelligent person comes out from this site, but my theory was another one.
If 2=x and the result= y
it becomes
x+x=y
2x=y
so if x=2 you have 4=y and y could be everything so it can also be 4=5

People, 2+2 could equal 5.

What people misunderstand is the PROPERTY that we use.

What I mean by this is "+" could mean addition.
As we all know, addition is a type of mathematical term that states that 2 "plus" 2 would always equal 4.
So, whenever we do 2+2=4, we basically use the PROPERTY OF ADDITIONS to find this particular answer, which is 4.

However, I could say that "+" means gop.
We could say gop is a type of mathematical term that states that 2 "gop" 2 would ALWAYS equal 5.
So whenever we do 2+2, it would be 5. Seeing this, we could say that we are using the PROPERTY OF GOP, resulting in the answer of 5.

In this debate, its a good thing that @YakovF defined "+" as addition.

However, @FLYINGDOGO2 also had the chance of winning this debate.
