Does two plus two equals 2?

They are both 2 so shouldn't they equal 2? it wouldn't make any sense for it to equal a different number?

    If you have 2 apples and receive another 2 apples then you will have 4 apples.

    This is shown as  :-

    2 + 2   = 4

    2 + 2 = 4 (2^0)

    In two dimensions (or more), it is possible.

    Start from a spot (call it (0,0) - i.e., the origin)

    Go due north for 2 km (the unit does not matter, as long as you use a relatively short one). You are now at (0, 2) 

    Turn right by 120 degrees: you are now facing 30 degrees south of East (or S60E if you prefer old-style compass bearings). Go another 2 km.

    You are now at (x, y) = (1, 1.732)

    The net distance of that point to the origin is exactly 2 km.

    There you are: you have walked 2 + 2

    in order to move by... 2.

    2 + 2 = 2

    This is not wrong in mathematics. It respects the "triangle inequality" of the rules of addition (as long as you are not in one dimension).

    Two plus two equals 4 (not 2).

    So if you have 2 apples and your brother has 2 apples you are going to starve to death if it equals 5 apples.

    Only in the sense that there are two number twos otherwise they add up to 4
