What a horrible example to translate!

It lives! The sentence will not go die!!

That does not make any sense!

It's not even grammatical: lit. "one one equal to one" - there's no verb!

In other shocking news, water is wet.

Possibly the stupidest sentence yet.

is there not a missing "add" or "plus"?

It's multiplication, not addition.

And like you might say "three fives are fifteen", here it is "one one is one" -- there is nothing to indicate the multiplication explicitly. (Just as we don't say "two times book" but just "two books".)

This tripped me up since I thought no, it can't be that daft!
