Easy way to escape math class: divide by zero, then sneak out through the wormhole it creates, amirite?

If you divide by zero it equals infinity. You learn that in calc.

wrong, it's undefined. For instance, divide zero by zero, should = infinity? But it also = one? You cannot define it

@http://www.metacalc.com/ Try it out.

Infinity is not a number, it is a concept. Nothing can be equal to it.

@Look at the calculator.

It has nothing to do with a calculator. I'm not trusting some online bullshit that can say anything. Infinity simply IS NOT A NUMBER.

@Neighbor It has nothing to do with a calculator. I'm not trusting some online bullshit that can say anything. Infinity...

It's the first calculator to come up. It isn't a number. However, a number divided by zero is defined as infinity. It is not undefined. Have you taken calculus yet? If you have, you should know this.

It's not calculus, it's not algebra, it's not anything. Infinity, like said below, is a limit.

@Neighbor It's not calculus, it's not algebra, it's not anything. Infinity, like said below, is a limit.

It's learned and used in calculus. You divide by zero, you use infinity.

@Neighbor Whoever you learned calculus from is horribly mistaken.

Hmm. hmm smilie Believe the expert, or the kid on the Internet. I think I'll choose the first one.

@Neighbor I choose logic, but your choice.

I choose fact, but to each his own.

@Neighbor That infinity is a number?

That anything divided by zero is infinity.

x/0=/=∞ unless ∞ is a number, which it isn't.

@Duck=bird. Bird is not a number.

It represents a specified value. ∞ is the extension of numerical values.

@Neighbor Clearly 10.

Of course that's a joke. I'm just wondering if you are in/ have taken calculus.

Pre-calc, sort of. I just recall a particularly good proof against your logic and am failing to recall it in totality.

You don't learn this in pre-calc. I remember from when I took it. I am not making things up here. This is a fact.

With calc you can show that the limit is infinity or negative infinity, depending on which way you approach 0 from. Hence it's normally considered undefined unless you're restricted to positive numbers.
