Almost.

5 = 4 + 1

5 = (2 + 2) + (2 / 2)

Pretty close?

Or how about this one? :

(2 << (2/2)) | (2 >> (2/2))

Better?

Let s begin with a few arbitrary variables a and b in which a = b =/= zero Multiply each side by way of a then subtract b^two (a^two - b^two = ab - b^two) Factorize each side so you will have (a-b)(a+b) = b(a-b) Divide each side by way of (a-b) so you will have a+b=b Now a = b so alternative to get b+b=b Therefore 2b=b Divide each side by way of b to get two = a million then upload three on each side four = five accordingly two+two = five Make certain to learn the entire Wikipedia article and ensure to recognize it (if you don't ask others (peers, household, maths trainer) to provide an explanation for to you)... This is without doubt one of the fundamental ideas in maths that are meant to be recognized by way of all mathematicians, physicists and laptop scientists (or any person with grade four or so maths, simply definitely now not within the fancy variety observed above).

George Orwell fan are we?

The easiest way is to flip the positions of 4 and 5 on the number line.

Another method is to use LSD (Least Sequential Denominators).

BTW, my tax accountant says he can make 2+2 equal anything I want! LOL

it doesn't, but I guess since you asked this programming, you could say

int int1=2

int int2=2

int1+int2=int total;

System.out.print(total++)

jk that still doesn't do anything
