9+10 is 21 and I can prove it with a popular TV show.


What TV show is this? 9+10 is 19. Here is the math. Let's assume that we do not really know what 9+10 is. We can set up the equation 9+10=x. 14+5 equals 19. We can set up the equation 14+5=x. You can multiply the whole equation by -1 to remove the x.
This results in the equation of -5+5=0 which is true. This means the two equations are equal. Now we need to solve 14+5=x.
14+5 is 19 so x is 19. 9+10=x so we can substitute it and get 9+10=19

This TV show is ICarly. In one episode, Carly is tutoring a child named Nevis. He is named a brat and needs to be punished. Carly creates a new number for Nevis, named Derf. Derf is the number between 5 and 6. Counting every number including Derf, we can get 21 from adding 9 and 10. Lets count:

one, two, three, four, five, derf, six, seven, eight, nine.

Keep counting and add 10 to this.

ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, derfteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one!


False. ICarly is fictional and not an accurate representation of the real world. Derf and derfteen are not actual numbers. Even if you assume derf is a number, that would still change it.
Lets count to nine. One two three four five derf six seven eight nine. Nine is one less than ten so we add one more to the amount. This results in it being continued by ten,eleven,twelve,thirteen,fourteen,derfteen,sixteen,seventeen,eighteen,and nineteen. Therefore, even with derf, 9+10 is still 19.
