Classic Maths Mistakes[edit]

Here I am collecting mistakes in maths which do not work. Ok, let's start the(so far, small)list!

MISTAKE 1: (b+1)²=b²+1

MISTAKE 2: (a+b)^2=a^2+b^2

How to add new mistakes[edit]

Just put in your maths mistake and put 'MISTAKE X' above it. X is the number of the mistake.
