It has been many years since I've read the Critique of Pure
Reason, and perhaps I am misrembering, but I was always
perplexed by Kant's insistence that 1 + 1 = 2 is a
synthetic proposition.  If an analytic proposition is
simply one that is true by denfintion, e.g.,
all unmarried men are bachelors, wouldn't 1 plus 1
equals 2 be in this category as well?
