I'm bad a math someone help, I have to hand in this assignment to my grade 2 teacher tomorrow.

EDIT: I got it wrong and got detention, you guys suck.

2+1=4 silly

Now go do the equation yourself before I tell on you

2+1 can be anything but 3

Did you seriously take this seriously?

unless this has some sort of geometrical catch, your question is not solvable, because we don't know how 2 and 1 relate to each other within your system. And even if we knew, the solution would probably too be arbitrarily redefined by you.

definitely 8

so 2^2 is 5, 2=5^(1/2), which is 2.23606798. If 1^2 is 11, then the same principle applies, making 1 equal to 11^(1/2), or 3.31662479036. If we add these two, we get 5.55269277036.

tl;dr 2 + 1 = 5.55269277036

so 2 = 2.23606798 ?

why would you even bother going though with that procedure after you got something like that. You can't just apply the commonly accepted system to his. It's like trying to binary code in hexadecimal, throwing letters at my computer to see what he makes with them.

you're going completely wrong here, 2+2=/=2^2 and 1+1=/=1^2 so your whole calculation is useless.

yes, 2=2.23606798, that was the entire point of the equations

you mean x^x ≠ x+x

because 2+2 kinda is the same as 2^2 and 1+1 also kinda is the same as 1^2

thats fine, but you got to that conclusion applying the standard system to his, which is not possible.

well 2+2 happens to be the same as 2^2 in our normal field, but 1+1 is definitely not the same as 1^2
also if 2^2=5 then 5^(1/2) would be 2 and not 2.2something.
Railey2
oh lol 1+1 is 2

*sound of glass shattering*

if theres something like an arch-mistake, then I just made it.

you are guilty too though, with saying that 2+2 ≠ 2^2
:p
silmarilen
yeah true, i was thinking too much so i missed that obvious part :P
Railey2
ok, to make this clear,

this is our normal decimal system

this is OP's system



If 2+2=5 and 1+1=11 what's 2+1

"2+2=5" and "1+1=11" is absolutely not our normal decimal system, because
2+2≠5 and 1+1≠11
thats why I use the different color.




what you suggest, is
2^2 is 5, 2=5^(1/2), which is 2.23606798 ... and so on.
This is not possible, its a mixup.

@silmarilen, I thought of a better riddle, try to solve this:

4+4 = 7
4^4 = 7
4/4 = 3
3*3 = 3
3/3 = 3
3+3 = ?
