    Read Orwell's"1984"---In the book it is a Slogan the Government uses.  It infers that The Government is "ALL POWERFUL"  It it says 2+2=5 then it DOES equal five and YOU had better agree.

    If i am right I know how you got to this question. Because some guy might have actually proved you mathematically that 2+2=5. There is actually a way, mathematical way to prove that, but most people are unable to find the mistake in it.

    You see that second line?

    Where the 4–9/2 is put into a square root function?

    Herein lies the problem.

    You see, what you get is basically absolute value. Which cannot be negative.

    So 2+2=5 is impossible.

    Since this is the math section, that's an untrue statement.

    In other fields, though, that might define a synergistic relationship, where the whole is more than the sum of its parts.  Like if someone had to hunt in the wilderness, and only had an arrow, they might spear something, but not much.  Or if they had only a bow, they might whack something.  But if they had both bow and arrow, their chances of getting dinner are more than twice what they were with either one alone.

    This is actually not true because 2+2 is actually 4 and 4 doesn't equal 5.  So you can't have 4=5

    2 + 2 = 5   --> False

    2 + 2 = 4   --> True

    it is a math mistake, 2+2=4
