    If we have a = b then
    a^2 = ab
    a^2 – b^2 = ab – b^2
    (a + b) (a – b) = b (a – b)
    a + b = b
    2b = b as a=b
    2 = 1

    Which Law of Maths is violated if any ?

    at (a+b)(a-b)=b(a-b), when you got result a+b=b you divided by zero. if a=b, then a-b=0.

    My Alg II teacher taught me the same basic thing in 11th grade:

    x=1
    x*x=x*1
    x^2=x
    x^2-1=x-1
    (x+1)(x-1)=(x-1)
    x+1=1
    1+1=1
    2=1

    same thing, different variables
