Question : 
What are 'Arithmetic Fallacies' ? 
Answer : 
Sometimes certain problems are put leading to arithmetical results which are obviously impossible. Such problems are known as
Arithmetical fallacies. 
Here is an example : 
Prove 1 = 2

Proof : 
Suppose that a = b
Then ab=a^{2} 
ab  b^{2} = a^{2}  b^{2} 
ab  b^{2} = (a + b) (a  b) 
b = a + b 
b = 2b 
1 = 2
