One divided by InfinityWhat is 1 / Infinity ? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20050530 19:34:19
Re: One divided by Infinity1/infinity? Infinity contains all known numbers, including negative numbers, in existance... Thus, you can really divide it by 0, can you? Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #3 20050530 19:39:32
Re: One divided by InfinityInifinity. A number SO BIG that you can't ever reach it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20050530 19:40:31
Re: One divided by InfinityOh! Oh! 1/2? Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #5 20050530 19:47:06
Re: One divided by InfinityOnly if Infinity=2 ... it don't "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20050530 19:47:45
Re: One divided by Infinity... That was the joke. O.o Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #7 20050530 20:01:28
Re: One divided by InfinityAlright. I've been thinking (Ragnarok!) and I've come up with this; Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #8 20050530 20:04:49
Re: One divided by Infinity
One infinitieth! School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #9 20050530 20:09:46

Re: One divided by InfinityAnd what you wrote in code, Zach, is called an "infinite loop" (though no such loop has ever gone on for infinity, at least not as fas as I know! ) "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20050530 21:04:31
Re: One divided by InfinityYes. There's actually no point of the END, as I've added no loop exit factor. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #12 20050531 20:52:03
Re: One divided by Infinitythat's great i hope u had fun I come back stronger than a poweredup PacMan I bought a large popcorn @ the cinema the other day, it was pretty big...some might even say it was "large Fatboy Slim is a Legend #13 20050618 01:57:13
Re: One divided by InfinityWell, I did. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #14 20050618 02:59:32
Re: One divided by Infinityhaw haw ho HAPPY HAPPY, JOY JOY Fatboy Slim is the band of the 90s, thats if you want to call it a band because its really a one man name #15 20050701 20:50:49
Re: One divided by InfinityI think it should be 1 infinitieth or just plain 0. #16 20050701 20:56:33
Re: One divided by Infinity1 infinitieth gets my vote! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #17 20050701 21:44:56
Re: One divided by InfinityIn mathematics, 1 divided by zero is consrued to be infinity..... Character is who you are when no one is looking. #18 20050704 03:29:16
Re: One divided by InfinityHow can infinity exist??? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #19 20050704 08:45:19
Re: One divided by InfinityWow, this kind of conversation is usually reserved for Buddhist Monks sitting on the side of mountains in the Himalayas. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #20 20050704 16:49:02
Re: One divided by Infinity
LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #21 20050704 17:55:54
Re: One divided by InfinityInfinity is not one of the "Real" numbers (ie it is not a 3 or a 7.01, or even a 1/7th), but nonetheless we can still use it. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #22 20050704 18:20:15
Re: One divided by InfinityYes, you are right. Infinity is diffuclt to comprehend for others, not for mathematicians. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #23 20050725 13:12:27
Re: One divided by Infinity
that would probably result in "overflow error" =P #24 20050725 23:18:40
Re: One divided by InfinityLet's consider the problem to findout the value of 1/infinity. #25 20050725 23:28:13
Re: One divided by Infinity
Ahhh ... but who came up with the rules? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman
