it is said that anything divided by 0 is infinity and when anything divides 0,its value is 0.

for ex:- 1/0=infinity

& 0/1=0

but then what will be the value of 0/0.

i think the answer is infinity but am not sure.

pls help.

Hi

Neither 1/0 nor 0/0 are defined.

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

NO!!

Anything divided by 0 is NOT infinity; it is undefined.

However you can say the following: if *a* is a positive real number

This is just a way of saying that dividing a positive number by progressively smaller positive numbers results in unboundedly large positive numbers. It is not dividing by zero.
