You know that you can't divide by zero yet you do not know why, amirite?

The voters have decided that Rider32 is wrong! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

1. It's because when you multiply by 0 it's 0.

2. Because 0/0 could be virtually anything.

3. With limits you can. It's either negative infinity or infinity in the case of non-0 over 0 or some constant in the case of 0/0.

Multiplication is the inverse of division.
6/3=2
3*2=6

If you were to divide by 0, you would have to say it equals 0, right?
36/0=0
0*0=/=36.

And if you did the same property with 0/0, you would have an infinite number of possibilities.
0/0=1
01=0
0/0=2
0
2=0
So 0/0 is called indeterminate.
