I can prove why 1 = 2

Step1. Lets say y = x

Step2. Multiply through by x xy = x2

Step3. Subtract y2 from each side xy - y2 = x2 - y2

Step4. Factor each side y(x-y) = (x+y)(x-y)

Step5. Divide both sides by (x-y) y = x+y

Step6. Divide both sides by y y/y = x/y + y/y

Step7. And so... 1 = x/y + 1

Step8. Since x=y, x/y = 1 1 = 1 + 1

Step9. And so... 1 = 2

How is this possible ?
