Theorem: All Positive Integers Are Equal

Theorem : All positive integers are equal.
Proof : Sufficient to show that for any two positive integers, A and B, A = B. further, it is sufficient to show that for all N > 0, if A nd B (positive integers) satisfy (MAX(A, B) = N) then A = B.

Proceed by induction.

If N = 1, then A and B, being positive integers, must both be 1. So A = B.

Assume that the theorem is true for some value k. Take A and B with MAX(A, B) = k+1. Then MAX((A-1), (B-1)) = k. And hence (A-1) = (B-1). Consequently, A = B.
