Hello everyone,

I was trying to resolve some mathematicals problems about the limits and the functions, but I still don't understand something at all, and I want to know if you can help me !

The problem is that I never understood the trick with 0 and the square root function :

-We know that we can't divide any number by 0, the result won't make any sense.

-We know that a real number divided by his square root is equal to his square root.

For example : 9/3=3, 3 is the square root of 9

But, what is the solution if the real number is 0 ? How do we deal with 0/0=0 ? Is the square root of 0 possible ?

TopNewestHere is the definition of a square root:

According to this definition, 0 does have a square root. According to yours, it does not. But I think it is better to use a definition where more things are defined. – Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 4 months, 4 weeks ago

So the relation sqrt(x) = x/sqrt(x) is not valid for x=0 I guessLog in to reply
