x = 2 not 12.  2x2=4 4+1=5.  It's algebra.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Exactly

More numbers.

The math problem is solving for x. 

I have no idea what you are arguing about or how it got started, but you seem to be acting a little silly about it.  Algebra is math.

You can't do math with letters.

x2+1=5

That statement is false.

Wrong.
Right.
x=12

Yet again we had to use numbers to prove the mathematical equation.

You can't do math with letters.

Firstly, x=2. Secondly, you just did math with letters.

Face it and embrace it.

Okay, maybe not math, but you can do algebra with letters, and algebra is a branch of math.

Ok, this is going to look strange, but there's no way to show the actual work from by homework, so deal with it.

-4x-7=49

(add 7 to each side and you get...)

-4x=56

(divide each side by -4 and you get...)

x=-14

(check if this is correct [it is]; i just did math with letters)

No the numbers are the math part of it.

Wrong. 
Quote from: OED:

mathematics, n.
 1. Originally: (a collective term for) geometry, arithmetic, and certain physical sciences involving geometrical reasoning, such as astronomy and optics; spec. the disciplines of the quadrivium collectively. In later use: the science of space, number, quantity, and arrangement, whose methods involve logical reasoning and usually the use of symbolic notation, and which includes geometry, arithmetic, algebra, and analysis; mathematical operations or calculations. Colloq. abbreviated maths, (N. Amer.) math.

Maths can be purely symbolic, therefore without knowledge of the nature of the variables it is entirely reasonable to say that all or none of the options you provided could be correct.


Quote from: Arthur Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Face it and embrace it.

Actually, given that no other constraints have been placed on x, the solution is x = 2 or -2.

No you did math with numbers in place of letters.  Try again.

Who attempted to do math without any numbers anyway? ???

Re-read the last 6 pages you will see.

We use it in maths, though.

It's called pie.  It stands for a number 3.14... with a bunch of numbers after the .14, and with out the number value you wouldn't be able to use it in a math problem. 

There's a bunch of symbols used in math that aren't numbers.


Prove it.


I can't believe we're even having this debate

Honestly, neither can I.


Ikr?

Also, 2x+2=8.  Wardogg, solve this; It's simple.

I'm not doing your fucking homework for you.  I don't have to do homework anymore.  Also I guarantee that "x" in the equation stands for a number.


I can't believe we're even having this debate

Quit trolling the teenage chat rooms.  It starts to effect your speech after a while.

Jill must have many BFFs...

Too bad your not one of them.  I bet that makes you feel sad and depressed.  See your razor blade for help.

How fun.

Actually I'm bored.

Seriously? I just spent an entire week in math, doing it without any numbers, you need to understand the algebra in order to do math, and algebra is math with letters.

No Algebra is math with letters that stand for numbers.  Therefore you can't do math with letters.

x = 2 not 12.  2x2=4 4+1=5.  It's algebra.

And yet again we prove that math with letters doesn't work.  You have to replace them with numbers to do the math. 

BTW I got As in Algebra and Trig.  It was Geometry that kicked my ass every year.  Theorems and postulates, WTF is that shit.
