MarcusThere is no problem with the math: dividing by 2, you get 2*0.5.(Although, when you normally divide, you don’t keep the divisor, only the quotient. But not in this case.) When you divide by 0.5, you get 2*0.5/0.5 = 2.

The only problem I see is how you would divide by 0.5. Or an even faster method would just be to multiply directly instead of going through an intermediary step. I WANT THE POWER TO MULTIPLY OBJETS !

Otto Bob Otto“Dividing by two” is not the same as “Splitting in two and keeping both parts” One divided by two is 1/2. And that’s it. Not two halves. One, split in two, is two halves. Hope that helps, and is clear enough.

Robin SaundersNo reference to the Banach-Tarski paradox? Disappointed.
