Being something of a mathematical pedant I have to point out that X+X/X=2 only when X=1.
(X+X)/X = 2 is undeniably true for all non-zero value of X. As Laurie Anderson said so eloquently, "Let x = x".
Good catch, the devil sometimes is in the details.

I'm embarrassed to admit that, up until 5 minutes ago, I had no idea what a pedant is -- which is made all the more embarrassing in that apparently I am one.   :o
