explain componendo and dividendo....

**Componendo and dividendo**is a method of simplification in Mathematics.

According to it,

This proof is invalid for a=b and c=d because if such that

*a*=

*b*and

*c = d*

then by application of componendo and dividendo, we get -

[as a=b and c=d]

Since division by zero is not defined. So, this proof is invalid for a = b and c = d
