According to my calculations, two plus two can only equal four.

In Math, no. However 2+2=5 was a slogan for Stalin referring to the five-year plan to increase production in the USSR.

No, 2 + 2 = 4.

Yes, according to the English alternative rock band Radiohead. 2+2=5 is a song from their 6th album, Hail to the Thief.

But in the early to middle 1800's Riemann developed an arithmetic in which 2+2 = 5, paralleling the Euclidean 2+2 = 4 arithmetic.

2 plus 2 equals 4 and can not equal 5.
