Is my proof that 2+2=5 true?

^ = exponent or "raised to the power"

-20 = 20
16 - 36= 25 - 45
4^2 - (9x4) = 5^2 - (9x5)
4^2 - (9x4) + 81/4 = 5^2 - (9x5) + 81/4
(4 - 9/2)^2 = (5 - 9/2)^2
Here we have used the identity: (a-b)^2=a^2+b^2-2ab

On the LHS
a = 4
b=9/2

On the RHS
a = 5
b = 9/2

We can cancel off the powers on both the sides... We get
4 - 9/2 = 5 - 9/2

Also, we can cancel (-9/2) from both the sides.
We are left with
4=5
Which is 2+2=5

Nope didn't understand any of that. I feel like you're just typing random things to confuse everyone into thinking 2+2=5 lol. Sorry buddy just not gonna happen. If you put 2 muffins into a basket and then another 2, you won't have 5 muffins :P
