Someone help me acomplish this

i used the searchbar, but they all came up with SPECIFIC topics, about "my math teacher did this" and etc, not a genaric dividing by zero thread... before anyone makes a remark

How Can You Possibly Use The Searchbr And Not Have A Divide By Zero Thread Appear!?

how'd you do thart?

dude, it does that when i hold down shift, and my caps lok key don't work, it's not my fault

Sorry, but that was too incredibly hilarious to not point out!

It's Really Because You Type Like This All The Time. I Suppose It Could Have Been Perfectly Acceptable Without This Annoying Typeset. Either Way, Dividing By Zero Leaves You With A Number Between Negative Infinity And Positive Infinity. In Other Words, You Don't Get An Answer At All. This Is Also Why It's Impossible To Move Anywhere Instantaneously. Speed = Distance / Time, So If You Have Say 10 Miles / 0 Time (instant)... Well Nothing Happens. You Can't Divide By Zero, So It Can't Be Done.

#9

You can't divide by nothing. It has no numerical value.

#10

<?php

$a = 1/0;

echo $a;

?>

#include <stdio.h>

void main()

{

printf("%f\n", 1.0 / 0);

}

So there.

#11

well, dividing by zero leaves you with nothingness, a void, becuase if you divide by zero, you are dividing by nothing, therefore, that nothing doesn't exist.

Be careful; black holes like when people divide by zero

in quantumphysics you probably can, but the universe would IMPLODE.

Probably what happened in another universe of the hitchhikers guide

Zero is the worst enemy in quantum physics. For example, when calculating black hole mass, that's why you get infinite mass answers.

I thought dividing by zero results in infinity? And since computers can't represent that, you get an error.well, dividing by zero leaves you with nothingness, a void, becuase if you divide by zero, you are dividing by nothing, therefore, that nothing doesn't exist.

#16

Dividing by zero causes you to get stuck in the Pit. There's no 'back' or 'home' buttons, you can't type in any different URLs into your browser, and you can't navigate away. You're stuck here. Forever. With pedobear constantly in your ear screaming 'RUSSELL WHAT THE

*F*UCK?'

It seems to me the answer would just be zero. What goes into five zero times? Zero.

Think of it as a fraction: 5/0. The lowest common denominator is zero, which, as I remember from third grade, makes the number zero.

But hey, I ain't no marth geek

well, if 1/0.1 =10 and 1/0.000001 = 1000000 then 1/0 could effectively mean infinity.

So there.

I made it better!

#23

1/0 is undefined. Ye cannae do it.

For example: 0x1 = 0.

0x2 = 0.

So 0x1 =0x2.

Divide by zero, and...

1=2. Snap.

Surely it's the other way round?

Zero goes into 5 infinite times, 0+0+0+0...

I've wanted to use that phrase for over 3 years now.

There are 6 apples. If you divide them up between 2 people, there are still 6 apples and each person has 3 apples. If you divide them up between 1 person, there are still 6 apples and that person has 6 apples. If you divide them up between nobody, there are still 6 apples but who has them? OSHI-

Oh rly.

And why/how is that?

#36

It's not infinity, it's undefined, you can't do it. Take a math class above high school level and you'll understand it.

#37

Oh rly.

And why/how is that?

With your logic, you'd say 1/0=inf. Multiply both sides by zero gives 1=inf x 0, or, in other words, 1=0. 1/0 can't be assigned a value.

It will always equal zero. What's so ****ing hard about this?

Correct, but the thread is about dividing BY zero, not dividing zero by another number.

I don't know why you feel the need to edit my quote you jerk...

It still equals zero.
