AČ - BČ = AB - BČ
It becoming 0 = 0 only proves that the equation is correct.

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

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.
