The inference is not always true:
18/6 = 3
24/6 = 4

Correct..... But, the conclusion E*E=O is also not true. I think that is where you play the game ...

The inference is not always true:
18/6 = 3
24/6 = 4

I think the moral of the proof is if you follow a reasoning which is not always true, you end up with a conclusion which will never be true.
O*E=E and E*E=E ... but as you said, it is not always true E/E=E or E/E=O.
The conclusion was E*E=O ... which will never be true.
