There is no such thing as 3

I hate addition/subtraction because it’s so arbitrary.

There’s no real proof or supporting reasons as to why 1+1=2. IT JUST IS.

This, I believe, is why I’m so great at complex mathematical equations, but not so much with fucking addition.

I said odd numbers, not equations involving odd numbers. Lrn2read

Actually, you can only be certain that 1+1=2 if r is an integer and |r| ≥3, where r is the radix. In base 2, aka binary, 1+1=10. In base −2, also called negabinary, 1=1=110. In base φ, or golden ratio base/phi-base/phinary, 1+1=10.01. Though 1+1= 2 in the imaginary base of 2i, or quarter−imaginary (because for the real numbers their representation is identical to that of base 4 or quaternary), in base (−1±i), or twindragon base (due to the associated fractal curve), 1+1=1100.
NOW YOU KNOW- AND KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE

The reason why I didn’t get that is because it doesn’t look like it makes grammatical sense to even notice. (“To even”, is that even right?? But hey, this is the internet.)

Look up the paradox that inspired this user’s name. Proceed to lose your ability to even.

Mathematics as a concept has literally no proof as to why it as a concept is true because it is just that, a concept.
So I can’t even begin to comprehend what might happen if people worked this out and started revolting against mathematicians, the revolutionaries would win; it’s not as mathematicians are fighters…

Whoever solves this gets a cookie (and show your work):

(2x+7)*((y-6)9)=1323 Solve for x and y.

if the ((y-6)9) means y-6 multiplied by 9

(2x+7) * ((y-6)9) = 1323
simplify right bracket
(2x+7) * (9y-54) = 1323
solve brackets
2×9y + 108x + 63y – 378 = 1323
add 378
2×9y + 108x + 63y = 1701
i stopped since i think this might be wrong so i’ll try again

if the ((y-6)9) means y-6 to the power of 9

simplify ((y-6)9) first
y^9 – 54y^8 + 1296y^7 – 18144y^6 + 163296y^5 – 979776y^4 + 3919104y^3 – 10077696y^2 + 15116544y – 10077696
simplify
9y – 432y + 9072y – 108864y + 916480y – 3919104y + 11757312y – 20155392y + 15116544y – 10077696
simplified to
3615625y – 10077696
therefore
(2x+7) * (3615625y – 10077696)
multiply the brackets with each other
7231250xy – 20155392x + 25309375y – 70543872

ok this looks completely wrong so i give up. i can’t even remember the last time i did maths like this ;_;

You can’t. There are two variables, so it would have to be a two-part equation in order to find single values for both. You could solve for one or the other, but that would just get you a linear-to-linear rational function.
Now give me my damn pastry.

Even has four letters in it. It is also one word. 4-1=3. But since there can be no evens, the answer would be solved by -4+-1=-3
Half life -3 confirmed.
