Look:

2 = 1, and I can prove it:

Let a=b.

a^2 = ab

a^2-b^2=ab - b^2

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

Dividing each side by a-b, we get (a+b) = b

But since a=b...

b+b=b
2b=b
Dividing each side by b, we get 2=1.

Seems like one of those mathematical anomalies that people tend to bring up every so often. You can try to prove something. It doesn't mean it's right. In 1984, they say that 2+2=5, but that's wrong. Math is a very rigid art, sir. You can't break it, no matter how hard you try. With math, there can be no error. I'll try to dissect your formula. I assume those carrots mean exponents.

First, I suggest you specify what the variables a and b represent. You really shouldn't have made this only one round, sir. You might think you're a hot shot at algebra, but I'm good at algebra myself. I suggest our next debate be a math debate too. I like math.

Your formula seems like a bunch of scribbles, but you never include the numbers one or two, only the variables a and b. Can you tell me what a and b represent? They have to MEAN something. Your proof is sorta all over the place. You're trying to prove something impossible, sir. Just tell me what those two variables represent in the comment section, and I'll plug them in and see if the formula works. Even if the formula does work, you've just discovered some sort of algebraic anomaly, it does not mean that two equals one.

Because you do some many nonsense debates, I'm guessing a retarded black baby created you

God must be sick in the head too. Maybe Satan created you.

That's how God created me.

Oh, I get it. Some more racist garbage. Why do people like you exist?

Yes the ^ sign represents an exponent. 2=1, just like how there should be a limit of one black family per neighborhood; thus, two black families can join into one large black family.

This sign: ^ does it represent an exponent?

Also, 15 works for the first 4 equations, but it doesn't prove that 2=1.

What carrots are frankfurter50 talking about?
