I think any number X/0 should=infinity because 0+0+0+0+0... would never equal the number so their are infinite zeros in any given number therefore 1/0=infinity.

If you agree or disagree please say so and provide proof for your argument.

TopNewestBut there would be no inverse element for any X/0. If you argue that 0/X=0 would be the inverse element then there wouldnt be an absorbing element. – Darius B · 2 months, 3 weeks ago

I am not arguing that 0/X=0 I am arguing that X/0=infinity 0/X is undefinedLog in to reply

0/X is undefined? How? 0/X = 0 for all non-zero X as far as my knowledge goes. – Yatin Khanna · 2 months, 3 weeks ago

if 0/X is 0 and X= 0 then 0/0=1 as well so the miniute you admit 0/x=0 you are saying that x=0Log in to reply

I said that 0/X is 0 for all "NON-ZERO" values of X. – Yatin Khanna · 2 months ago
