How does 0=infinity?

A)First, let's start with 00\frac{0}{0}=x

A1. multiply by 0

B)Now we do 0\frac{0}{∞}

B1. Let's say 0\frac{0}{∞}=y multiply by ∞ 0=y*∞

B2. divide by 0 multiply by ∞ [ 0=y0\frac{y*∞}{0} ]

C) Now 0\frac{∞}{0}=z

C1. multiply by 0 0*z=∞

C2. divide by z 0=z\frac{∞}{z}

Take all the bolded equations that have 0

x* 0=y*∞=z\frac{∞}{z} divide by 0 x= y0\frac{y*∞}{0}=0\frac{∞}{0}

Take the [equation with square brakets] and the above that have y0\frac{y * ∞}{0} x= 0\frac{∞}{0}= 00\frac{0}{0} multiply by 0 x*0= =0\boxed{∞=0}

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

lol, u violated a lot of math rules.
what is your intention? to create a new set of rules?
nice idea, but still u violated your own new rules.

I am ASSUMING that dividing by 0 and infinity is possible.

ok. but to violate math rules dont prove this assumption

if u multiply an equation with 0, u will always get 0 = 0. thats why multiplication with 0 is not used to solve equalitys.
else u could prove 3 = 4 by multiply with 0: 3 * 0 = 4 * 0 -> 0=0

i can add more steps where maths violations happened, if it is helpful for u.
