1 1.5 Proofs That Are Not Valid YOU WILL NEED grid paper ruler scissors EXPLORE Consider the following statement: There are tthree errorss in this sentence. Is the statement valid? GOAL Identify errors in proofs. INVESTIGATE the Math Moh was working with tiles on grid paper. He used right triangles and right trapezoids. Area = 65 Area = 64? Since I used the same tiles: 64 = 65 How was it possible for 64 to equal 65? A. Construct, as precisely as possible, the square figure on grid paper. B. Separate the square into its right triangles and right trapezoids. C. Cut out the shapes. Then reconfigure the shapes to make the rectangle. D. Determine the accuracy of the positions of the shapes by looking for overlap or empty space. E. Does Moh s rearrangement of tiles prove that 64 equals 65? Explain. Reflecting F. What does any overlap or empty space suggest about the areas of the figures? G. How do the colours make the rectangle and the square appear to have the same area? H. Explain how you can check for errors in your constructions. 36 Chapter 1 Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

2 APPLY the Math example 1 Using reasoning to determine the validity of an argument Athletes do not compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympics. Hayley Wickenheiser has represented Canada four times at the Winter Olympics. Therefore, Hayley Wickenheiser has not participated in the Summer Olympics. Tia read these statements and knew that there was an error. Identify the error in the reasoning. Tia s Solution Hayley Wickenheiser has represented Canada four times at the Winter Olympics. Athletes do not compete in both the Summer and Winter Olympics. Hayley Wickenheiser has represented Canada four times at the Winter Olympics. Therefore, Hayley Wickenheiser has not participated in the Summer Olympics. I did some research and found that 18 athletes have competed in both Games. This statement is not valid. This statement is true. She has played on the national hockey team. The conclusion was false because the first statement was false. Hayley played for Canada in the softball competition in the 2000 Summer Olympics. Zack is a high school student. All high school students dislike cooking. Therefore, Zack dislikes cooking. Where is the error in the reasoning? example 2 Bev claims he can prove that Using reasoning to determine the validity of a proof Bev s Proof Suppose that: a 1 b 5 c This statement can be written as: 4a 2 3a 1 4b 2 3b 5 4c 2 3c After reorganizing, it becomes: 4a 1 4b 2 4c 5 3a 1 3b 2 3c Using the distributive property, 41a 1 b 2 c2 5 31a 1 b 2 c2 Dividing both sides by 1a 1 b 2 c2, Show that Bev has written an invalid proof. Communication Stereotypes are generalizations based on culture, gender, religion, or race. There are always counterexamples to stereotypes, so conclusions based on stereotypes are not valid. invalid proof A proof that contains an error in reasoning or that contains invalid assumptions. 1.5 Proofs That Are Not Valid 37 Tip

3 Pru s Solution premise A statement assumed to be true. Suppose that: a 1 b 5 c Bev s premise was made at the beginning of the proof. Since variables can be used to represent any numbers, this part of the proof is valid. 4a 2 3a 1 4b 2 3b 5 4c 2 3c Bev substituted 4a 2 3a for a since 4a 2 3a 5 a. Bev substituted 4b 2 3b for b since 4b 2 3b 5 b. Bev substituted 4c 2 3c for c since 4c 2 3c 5 c. 4a 1 4b 2 4c 5 3a 1 3b 2 3c I reorganized the equation and I came up with the same result that Bev did when he reorganized. Simplifying would take me back to the premise. This part of the proof is valid. 41a 1 b 2 c2 5 31a 1 b 2 c2 Since each side of the equation has the same coefficient for all the terms, factoring both sides is a valid step. 41a 1 b 2 c2 1a 1 b 2 c2 a 1 b 5 c a 1 b 2 c 5 c 2 c a 1 b 2 c a 1 b 2 c2 1a 1 b 2 c2 Dividing both sides of the equation by a 1 b 2 c is not valid. Division by zero is undefined. This step appears to be valid, but when I looked at the divisor, I identified the flaw. When I rearranged the premise, I determined that the divisor equalled zero. How could this type of false proof be used to suggest that ? 38 Chapter 1 Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

4 example 3 Using reasoning to determine the validity of a proof Liz claims she has proved that Liz s Proof I assumed that Then I squared both sides: I got a true statement: This means that my assumption, , must be correct. Where is the error in Liz s proof? Simon s Solution I assumed that Then I squared both sides: I got a true statement: Liz started off with the false assumption that the two numbers were equal. Everything that comes after the false assumption doesn t matter because the reasoning is built on the false assumption. Even though , the underlying premise is not true. 25 Z 5 Liz s conclusion is built on a false assumption, and the conclusion she reaches is the same as her assumption. If an assumption is not true, then any argument that was built on the assumption is not valid. Circular reasoning has resulted from these steps. Starting with an error and then ending by saying that the error has been proved is arguing in a circle. circular reasoning An argument that is incorrect because it makes use of the conclusion to be proved. How is an error in a premise like a counterexample? 1.5 Proofs That Are Not Valid 39

5 example 4 Using reasoning to determine the validity of a proof Hossai is trying to prove the following number trick: Choose any number. Add 3. Double it. Add 4. Divide by 2. Take away the number you started with. Each time Hossai tries the trick, she ends up with 5. Her proof, however, does not give the same result. Hossai s Proof n Choose any number. n 1 3 Add 3. 2n 1 6 Double it. 2n 1 10 Add 4. 2n 1 5 Divide by 2. n 1 5 Take away the number you started with. Where is the error in Hossai s proof? Sheri s Solution n n 1 3 2n 1 6 2n n 1 5 I corrected the mistake: 2n n n n 5 5 I tried the number trick twice, for the number 1 and the number 10. Both times, I ended up with 5. The math trick worked for Hossai and for me, so the error must be in Hossai s proof. The variable n can represent any number. This step is valid. Adding 3 to n is correctly represented. Doubling a quantity is multiplying by 2. This step is valid. Its simplification is correct as well. Adding 4 to the expression is correctly represented, and the simplification is correct. The entire expression should be divided by 2, not just the constant. This step is where the mistake occurred. I completed Hossai s proof by subtracting n. I showed that the answer will be 5 for any number. Is there a number that will not work in Hossai s number trick? Explain. 40 Chapter 1 Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

6 EXAMPLE 5 Using reasoning to determine the validity of a proof Jean says she can prove that \$ Jean s Proof \$1 can be converted to can be expressed as cents is one-tenth of a dollar One hundredth of a dollar is one cent, so \$ How can Jean s friend Grant show the error in her reasoning? Grant s Solution \$1 can be converted to can be expressed as cents is one-tenth of a dollar A dollar is equivalent to (10)(\$0.10) or 10(10 ), not to (10 )(10 ) or (\$0.10)(\$0.10). \$1 Z 1 It is true that 100 cents is the same as \$1. It is true that (10) 2 is 10 10, which is 100. It is true that 10 dimes make up a dollar. Arithmetically, I could see that this step was true. But Jean was ignoring the units. It doesn t make sense to square a dime. The units 2 and \$ 2 have no meaning. Does Grant s explanation fully show the error in Jean s reasoning? Explain. In Summary Key Idea A single error in reasoning will break down the logical argument of a deductive proof. This will result in an invalid conclusion, or a conclusion that is not supported by the proof. Need to Know Division by zero always creates an error in a proof, leading to an invalid conclusion. Circular reasoning must be avoided. Be careful not to assume a result that follows from what you are trying to prove. The reason you are writing a proof is so that others can read and understand it. After you write a proof, have someone else who has not seen your proof read it. If this person gets confused, your proof may need to be clarified. 1.5 Proofs That Are Not Valid 41

7 CHECK Your Understanding Calories burned while running depend on mass, distance, and time. A runner of mass 70 kg who runs 15 km in 1 h will burn about 1000 Calories. 1. Determine the error in each example of deductive reasoning. a) All runners train on a daily basis. Gabriel is a runner. Therefore, Gabriel trains daily. b) All squares have four right angles. Quadrilateral PQRS has four right angles. Therefore, PQRS is a square. 2. According to this proof, Identify the error. PRACTISING 3. Mickey says he can prove that Here is his proof.

Closing 8. Discuss with a partner how false proofs can appear to be both reasonable and unreasonable at the same time. Summarize your discussion. Extending 9. Brittney said she could prove that a strip of paper has only one side. She took a strip of paper, twisted it once, and taped the ends together. Then she handed her friend Amber a pencil, and asked Amber to start at any point and draw a line along the centre of the paper without lifting the pencil. Does a strip of paper have only one side? Why or why not? 10. Brenda was asked to solve this problem: Three people enjoyed a meal at a Thai restaurant. The waiter brought a bill for \$30. Each person at the table paid \$10. Later the manager realized that the bill should have been for only \$25, so she sent the waiter back to the table with \$5. The waiter could not figure out how to divide \$5 three ways, so he gave each person \$1 and kept \$2 for himself. Each of the three people paid \$9 for the meal. 9 # The waiter kept \$ What happened to the other dollar? Does the question make sense? How should Brenda answer it? 44 Chapter 1 Inductive and Deductive Reasoning
