/sci/ what happens if we divide by zero?

>>

You get an F on your test.

>>

>>7588218

You get infinity

>>

>>7588218

depends, is your definition of zero an infinitesimal?

1/infinitesimal=infinity

>>

>>7588309

the limit is discontinuous as well you dipshit

>>

>>7588304

0/10 see me after class

>>

By trying to divide by zero, you are asking "how many zeroes are in the number I'm dividing into". Let's say it's 3/0. OK, how many zeroes are in three? Is there none? One? Thirteen? Graham's Number of zeroes?

Since the answer cannot be determined, then the operation cannot be performed.

Hence, dividing by zero is UNDEFINED.

Think of pi. Its generated by some algorithm. There is no end.

When you divide by 0, its similar, except in the other direction.

You can keep generating digits in the higher digits direction, and its never going to end.

ill see u after class 2 big boy ;3

0 + 0 = 0

0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 0

The sum of zero from 1 to infinity is 0

So therefore, by your logic, isn't any number divided by 0... 0?

>>

undefined

>>

>>7588873

10/0 u mean

>>

>>7588218

You open a portal to higher dimension and learn the truth about all the things the government doesn't want you to know!!!!!!!!!!

>>

>>7589158

Ok I'll try

∞/0

>>

>>7589158

It doesn't work btw

Fuck u anon

>>

>>7588973

His logic states that the sum of zeros should be 3, not 0.
