## Dividing by zero

For discussing anything related to physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and their practical applications.

### Dividing by zero

31 divided 0 times is just still 31

0 divided 31 times is just still 0 (still nothing to divide)

What this means is that

0 divided by 0 (nothing not divided) is just 0

Everyone who parrots that 0 divided by 0 is undefined, has just learned how to parrot math ...

They don't actually understand the simplicity of the true answer

No, 0 ÷ 0 = Something. You can't focus on nothing.

### Re: Dividing by zero

When the numerator is zero and the denominator is a positive integer the answer is infinity not zero
Even where the denominator is also zero the answer can still be infinity as well as zero and also one

31/2 = 31 divided into 2 pieces. - each piece = 15.5, [2 * 15.5 = 31]
31/0 = 31 divided into 0 pieces. - makes no sense and thus = "undefined" (not "infinity"), [0 * ?nothing? = 31]

Ecmandu wrote:0 divided 31 times is just still 0 (still nothing to divide)

0/31 = 0 divided into 31 pieces - each piece is still zero, [31 * 0 = 0]

Ecmandu wrote:0 divided by 0 (nothing not divided) is just 0

0/0 = 0 divided into 0 pieces - still makes no sense because it is "indeterminate", [0 * ?anything? = 0]

Well .. someone didn't.

In hyperreal notation, those same numbers can be resolved because more information is within the notation. Each "0" has a degree of zero that it is, not merely an ambiguous nothing.

That's because 0 is not nothing. Or rather, nothing is not = 0.

### Re: Dividing by zero

Oh c'mon you guys...

Zero is the lack of quantity.

Dividing a lack of quantity still gives you a lack of quantity.

A lack of quantity dividing a quantity just leaves you with the initial quantity.

Honestly folks!!

If 31 divided by 0 is 31 and 31 divided by 1 is also 31, then logically 0=1

0 / 31 = infinity
31 / 0 = nonsense

0 / 0 = 0 and 1 and infinity

Any positive integer / 0 = nonsense
Any negative integer / 0 = nonsense

0 / any positive integer = infinity
0 / any negative integer = nonsense

0 / anything above 0 = infinity
0 / anything below 0 = nonsense

That is up to Phyllo to ask. He is making a asserting similar to mine, I want to cross examine it. Cross examining you doesn't get me into a place of potentially grasping my own position better, I already know your wrong, what matters now is the specifics in how Phyllo is right.

### Re: Dividing by zero

I'm really sorry to burst your bubble phyllo, and in the process maybe make you all mad at me ...

If you divide something by 1... You simply (aside from the concept of equality) split into two pieces...

The problem is you guys parrot shit instead of thinking it through ...

Math gets people as angry as sports, but I'm not lying.

You guys interpret dividing something by 1 as dividing it by itself, however 31 pieces of 31 is not the same as 31!!

You guys have been brainwashed!

One doesn't = Whole

This is a presumption One is always monistic. One is a Dyad is 2 and 1 simultaneously, but not three as the two states are presumptions of states of being and not actuality, so are not mutually in play upon the other simultaneously, by themselves.

That makes no sense whatsoever...

31 divided no times is still 31

No quantity divided "31" times is still no quantity ...

Maybe you can be kind and call the latter a virtual or imaginary number to your stance. Regardless, dividing a lack of quantity 31 times does not create a quantity, not an undefined

Not if the whole is Dyad Ecamndu. Are you doing the recount for Jill Stein Ecmandu? You including new votes in there count?

Prove that a whole meta concept such a dyad can only be dyad and not triad as well.

We can easily abstract "group". (Monad) as anything we want!

31 divided no times is still 31

31 not being divided at all is not 31 being divided by 0

31 = 31 [ not being divided at all ] but 31 / 0 = nonsense
