About 0/0


  • M0★ M2 M3

    There is a proof that \( \frac{0}{0}\) is indeterminate because:
    If you divide 0 by tiny positive numbers approaching 0, the answers approach \(+♾\).
    And If you divide 0 by big negative numbers approaching 0, the answers approach \(-♾\).
    Then \( \frac {0}{0}\) is indeterminate because it can’t be \(+♾\) and \(-♾\) at the same time.
    Assuming this is true, why can’t \( \frac{0}{0}\) be \(+-♾\)?

    What would +-♾ mean anyway?

    Hi @RZ923!
    Well, that's a nice question and is a very deep concept. You can read about it here.
