The fun part comes in at step 2, when you set the entire equation to 0. Game over after it equals zero. =)
AČ - BČ = AB - BČ
It becoming 0 = 0 only proves that the equation is correct.

2b doesnt equal b. theres the problem. How can you just randomly say 2x1 = 1?

no the equation cancles, Its not factorable. Game over. Algebricly it IS factorable, but your factoring zero and trying to get not zero. Algebricly its sound, but any good compiler will through a logic error =P

since A = B all that = 0

AČ - BČ = AB - BČ = 0 therefore not only does 2b = b but so does 3, 4, 5 and 6b = b since both A and B = 0

This is true, but that doesn't disprove it! It's still true, just as you said! You guys are all missing the fundamental problem here. I'll give everyone another day. After that, I'll let the cat out of the bag.

And that's exactly what I'm talking about here.
It still works, even when zero!

I'm not randomly saying that. It follows from the proof.

Okay, most of you guys are touching on the problem, but you're not quite there. Here's a hint: try doing the math with actual numbers. That should give it away.
