ritika pose la question :
we say that one divided by zero gives us infinity, then why zero multiplied by infinity does not gives us one?????????????

Multiplying and dividing by zero 2007-02-05
colin pose la question :
i would like to if u multiply 1,000,000 by 0 does it equal o or 1.

if you have a number eg 15689 and you divide by o what would the answer be is it 1

1/infinity and 1/0 2006-03-04
Evan pose la question :
I was thinking the other day when i was in math class that when you divide 1 by say n you'll get 1/n. As the value of n increases the smaller the number you get. So if you divide 1/infinity would that equal zero? And if that is true then would 1/0=infinity be true also?

'zero divided by one' and 'one divided by zero' 2005-01-31
Katrina pose la question :
Please advise how best to explain the distinction between the solution to 'zero divided by one' and 'one divided by zero'. I remember being told in school that one of them is undefined and the other is zero but I'm having difficulty with calculating and explaining it to some highly curious 10 year olds!

1/0 = ?? 2003-12-09
Lisa pose la question :
One of my students asked me a fractions question. She knows that 0/1 equals 0 but does 1/0 also equal 0?

Division by zero 2003-01-19
David pose la question :
I've been to your site and am interested on the subject of division by 0. It's easy enough to give answers, but it's very hard, especially in this case, to make someone understand a mathematical problem.

It's been about a year since my Calc class, and we never went over division by 0, only infinite numbers and such. My question is: How would you work a problem of (real number) / 0 ? As ignorant as it may sound to you, I am having trouble grasping this since I've only begun to understand some of it. Perhaps you could help.

Why is division by zero undifined (i have to proof that division by zero is undifined)

Stacy pose la question :
I have a question about dividing with zero. When the numerator is zero, the answer is zero. But when the denominator is zero, the answer is undefined. Why? I don't understand
Claude Tardif lui répond.
Division by zero 1999-09-02
Joshua B. Mariano pose la question :
Why can't I divide a number by zero. When I put in my calculater 0 divided by 7 it equals 0. But when I put 7 divided by zero my calculater say's error. Why can't this be solved? What is the answer? Is there a paper on it? Help?
Walter Whiteley lui répond.
Finding Excluded Values 1999-04-01
Lorraine Le Cam pose la question :
The question asks me to find the value of the variable that must be excluded in each rational expressionion. The operation is:

a - 2

How do I work this out?
Harley Weston lui répond.

Indeterminate forms 1998-12-11
R. Dixon pose la question :
What is the correct evaluation of infinity/0 ? I've checked three different math sites. One says definitively, that infinity/0 is "not" possible. Another states that infinity/0 is one of the indeterminate forms having a large range of different values. The last reasons that infinity/0 "is" equal to infinity.
Walter Whiteley and Harley Weston lui répond.

Linda Hood pose la question :
I am a college student and have been asked to explain and figure out why we can't divide by zero.
Chris Fisher lui répond.
