With the following trick you can turn 1€ into 100€: $$ \begin{align} 1 \, € &= 2 \, € \cdot 0.5 \, € \\ &= 200 \, \text{ct} \cdot 50 \, \text{ct} \\ &= 10 \, 000 \, \text{ct} = 100 \, € \end{align} $$

Where did I cheat in this calculation?

    $\begingroup$ That’s a nice trick which I’ve never encountered before. I wonder if there are any economic formulae in which the square of money unit is a thing. $\endgroup$
