Undefined and unlimited, in my opinion, are different. Undefined has no solution, while unlimited is \(\infty\). Vincent Tandya · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Vincent Tandya Well, if it has multiple (infinite) values, wouldn't that mean that the value is not defined as there isn't a definitive value? Michael Tong · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Michael Tong Yes, but from this does not logically follow that there is no difference between undefined and unlimited. Ralph Schraven · 3 years, 8 months ago

@Michael Tong actually undefined is something not defined bt infinite is something having either a verly large value or very small value within someones reach ... e.g. for an atom infinite distance may be 1m but relative to us it is achievable i.e. infinite has a value (large or small) and is relative ..

It is like this: The numerator is fine, but the denominator seems to be the crux of the matter. If we take a number close to 0, say 0.1, and divide 1 by it, you get 10(1/0.1 = 1 ÷ 1/10 = 1 * 10/1 = 10). Let's get closer to zero, 1/0.0001 = 10000. So 1 /10^-10 = 10^10.

Therefore, the closer you get to zero, the bigger the number gets. That is why I believe that division by zero equals to infinity.

In your case though, 0/0 = 0/infinity = 0.

Hope this is helpful. Aadi Bhure · 2 years, 9 months ago

The most correct is Undefined (Undefined or Unlimited) with the symbol 8 in the direction of 90 degrees. (instead of 8 in the direction of 180 dedrajat).

0 is the wrong answer, because the answer to 0 will only be obtained if one of the numerator (0 / n) is the number 0.

If the denominator is 0 (n / 0), regardless of the number numerator certainly Undefined (Undefined)

1 more wrong. 1 obtained when the numerator divided by the exact same number by the denominator (n / n = 1, y / y = 1).

Error E in the calculator means, means justify Undefined. Remember, the symbol 8 in the direction of 90 degrees.

May the best answer I can enlighten you. Yuki Andika · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Yuki Andika She means \( \infty \) or \( undefined \) Priyansh Sangule · 3 years, 9 months ago

@Priyansh Sangule According to her, both are same I guess, that's why she said Undefined or Unlimited. Lokesh Sharma · 3 years, 9 months ago
