# According to amirite, zero divided by zero is zero. When you make a post, then remove your vote, nobody has voted on it and it says "0% agree",

The voters have decided that Watchful_questioneer is

**right**! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
disagree% = 100% - agree%

but that doesn't work here either

I feel like I'm missing something

Zero divided by zero is an imaginary number because it is a contradiction of three rules:

1. any number divided by itself = 1

2. zero divided by any number = 0

3. any number divided by zero = anything

ah that's probably what I was missing

imaginary numbers

I was thinking about limits at one point

It's not an imaginary number, that's the square root of a negative number

0 divided by 0 is anything, and that's the basis for limits and calculus

I'm kind rusty on limits

can limits explain his post and my first comment?

Limits (0/0 limits that is) involve a situation in which the numerator and the denominator contain values that are both multiplied by 0. Derivatives are a 0/0 limit based on the ratio of the infinitesimal change in the value of the function over the infinitesimal change in x, and the behavior of that ratio as the change in x approaches 0.

But since 0 out of 0 people voted and there is a situation in which no limit of any kind can be used to determine the percentage that agree or disagree, there is no percentage that can adequately tell you how many people agree with the post. 38% agree makes about as much sense as 0% agree or 100% agree.

even if it might not work mathematically

it just

feelslike we can say 0% agree and 0% disagree just because the population is 0I see what you mean, but from a purely mathematical standpoint, it can be virtually anything
