Yes:

First we start with the true statement that 1 / -1 = -1 / 1.

Then we take the square root of both sides: sqrt(1 / -1) = sqrt(-1 / 1)

Then we distribute the root: sqrt(1) / sqrt(-1) = sqrt(-1) / sqrt(1)

Then we cross-multiply: sqrt(1) X sqrt(1) = sqrt(-1) X sqrt(-1)

Simplified: sqrt(1) ^2 = sqrt(-1) ^2

Obviously, the square root of any number, squared, is equal to the number itself, so: 1 = -1

Add 3 to both sides: 4 = 2

Divide both sides by 2: 2 = 1

And therefore, 2=1. Any questions?
