Default 10 + 10 + 2 = 24

I know it was unnecessary to open a thread because of this, but have not opened a thread in a while, so I guess its OK.

BD Khela

on the match, good show to say the least ......

Source from Cricinfo:

Twenty two wickets fell on an action-packed opening day to the Zimbabwean's tour match against a Bangladesh Academy side at Bogra. Both first innings were over for less than 100 as the tourists were skittled for 89 before responding by removing the Bangladesh side for a paltry 59. By the close some normality had returned to proceedings as the Zimbabweans moved to 133 for 2, gaining a lead of 163.

The first six overs gave little indication of the mayhem to follow as Hamilton Masakadza and Vusi Sibanda eased to 35 without loss after the Zimbabweans decided to bat. However, Nazmul Hossain broke through and wickets started to fall in a rush as he and Sajidul Islam shared nine scalps.

After the opening pair, only Tatenda Taibu managed to reach double figures and the whole innings lasted just 21.3 overs as Sajidul ended with 5 for 14.

The home side, though, fared even worse as the assortment of Zimbabwean seamers hustled through a brittle batting order. Two Bangladeshi batsmen reached double figures as Marshall Ayub and Kamrul Islam added 31 for the fifth wicket, but either side of that mini resistance the first four fell for 20 and the last five for nine runs.

With an unexpected lead the Zimbabwean openers were back at the crease, but Sibanda fell for the second time in the day. Finally the batsmen began to settle as Masakadza and Stuart Matsikenyeri added 75 in 19 overs before Sajidul collected his sixth wicket of the day. Masakadza remained unbeaten on 55 at the close, by far the best individual effort.

not a mathematics major huh?

Proof:

0=0+0+0+....
0=(1-1)+(1-1)+(1-1)+.....
after associative laws of addition
0=1+(-1+1)+(-1+1)+(-1+1)....
0=1+0+0....
0=1

hence 10+10+0+0+2=24
but 0=1 so, 10+10+1+1+2=24 [Q.E.D]

Wrong!

In an associative law, the number of operands you start with must be the same as the number you end. Hence, by using infinite sequence, you broke the rule of the associative law where you added more operands from the initial point. Thus proving that the proof is incorrect.

No problem Gopal. I really see you really are quite the prankster. Then tell me why would this be wrong?

Suppose,

x=0
=d/dx (x) = d/dx (0)
= 1=0

Hey, dont blame the writer.
He was just as clueless as the batsman.
After having look at the scorecard, anyone can lost count how many wickets fell.

this statement is false. "x" is a variable, not a number, when you take the "slope" or derivative, you get 1. "0" is a value and it's derivative is zero. when you take the derivative of "x", your result is only one of that function. and similarly, there is only one "0"...the problem with this equation is you equated the value 0 with the variable "1 of x" and we assumed them to be equal in value while clearly, they are not!

Exactly. That's why such proofs could never be accepted.

You are not a math major for sure. But I seriously doubt if you have taken a first course in calculus!

Yes you are correct. I am indeed not a math major. However, I did take take first year calculus, and am continuing the second year course also. Don't you think it's kind of unfair to judge my math knowledge with one single false proof?
