# How does 0=infinity?

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

A1. multiply by 0
0=0*x

B)Now we do $\frac{0}{∞}$

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

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

C) Now $\frac{∞}{0}$=z

C1. multiply by 0 0*z=∞

C2. divide by z 0=$\frac{∞}{z}$

Take all the bolded equations that have 0

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

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

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.

- 3 months, 2 weeks ago

ok. but to violate math rules dont prove this assumption

- 3 months, 2 weeks ago

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.
