Dividing by ZeroI thought I would make a page on Dividing by Zero "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20090730 10:37:25
Re: Dividing by ZeroHi Mathsifun; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20090730 19:57:42
Re: Dividing by ZeroFor centuries it has been undefined, but today... #4 20090730 20:15:27

Re: Dividing by ZeroI should put that in ... wait, no. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20090902 09:12:46
Re: Dividing by ZeroIf I where you I would also put that 12/0=0 because if there are 0 people how do you split it up so that is is equal #7 20090902 09:15:48
Re: Dividing by ZeroBut it can't be zero, or you have turned 12 chocolates into nothing, which would be a waste of good chocolate "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20090902 12:53:02

No, a mystery guest named Mr. Bubbles walks in and eats them all. No waste! Last edited by simron (20090902 12:54:00) Linux FTW #9 20090903 08:12:48
Re: Dividing by ZeroI like the first sentence and the picture with it. I'll be here at least once every month. XP #10 20091126 05:20:59
Re: Dividing by ZeroI'm learning limits so this should come in handy = ]
