Undefined and unlimited, in my opinion, are different. Undefined has no solution, while unlimited is \(\infty\).

Well, if it has multiple (infinite) values, wouldn't that mean that the value is not defined as there isn't a definitive value?

Yes, but from this does not logically follow that there is no difference between undefined and unlimited.

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.

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.

She means \( \infty \) or \( undefined \)

Priyansh Sangule - 4 years, 3 months ago

According to her, both are same I guess, that's why she said Undefined or Unlimited.

@Lokesh Sharma not actually unlimited
