well i tried all ways,means and methods to find the mistake in this...if u people can help me then i will be very glad to have it...check this and find the mistake
FIND THE MISTAKE IN THE FOLLOWING....

1 RS. = 1 RS.
1 RS. = 100 PAISE..
1 RS. = (10x10) PAISE..
1 RS. = (0.1x0.1) RS.
1 RS. = (0.01) RS.
1 RS. = 1 PAISE.
:

is it?????????????

hey hey u understand wrong

funny question, but amazed how people forgets the basics, first of all man tell me is it possible that

a non squared quantity is equal to a squared quantity, have u forget the method of verifying the equation by transforming it into its basic units (old knowledge in basic physics)
now the fault in ur calculation is u have equated

Rs= square Rs (i think u got it)

if still not let Rs.1= Rs.1
= 100 paisas (absolutely correct)
= (10x10) paisas (that is true)
= Rs. (.1 x .1) (absolutely wrong)

coz u cannot conver indudaul paisa into ruppees, 10x10 is a one unit, but for ur case it becomes = (Rs. 0.1 x Rs. 0.1)
= square Rs.(0.1 x .01)
but u have written as Rs. .01 that is absolutely wrong. that was the fault in ur calculations. THink man Think, Mathematics is fun, but complex for those who forgets the basis, feel free to ask any thing about math.

is correct uptil here ..

following is incorrect and does not make any sense ...

i mean , what is this ??

hey hey u understand wrong

oops u got wrong
first answer me can a square quantity equal to a square quantity, have u forgets the old physics knowledge of physics of basic units,
ur problem is Rs. 1 = Rs. 1 (absolutely right)
= 100 paisas (yes its true)
= (10 x 10) paisas (fine)
= Rs( 0.1 x 0.1) (0ops its wrong)
u cannot convert single paisas into Rs. when they r in the product form, coz then bassically it becomes square of Rs.
and Rs = Square Rs it is contradiction, i think u got it, if u still not got it, feel free, to ask, but brother remember whenever to solve any mathematical problem , u have to recall the basics of knowledge.
