 Pro First round acceptance. Second round, debateReport this Argument Con I think that 0 isn't technically equals to zero and I can prove it .... See, 1/1= 1 ---------------(i) Now if 0 is equal to 1 then, 0/0= not defined --------------------because if we divide any number by 0 then it is not defined-------------------(ii) From (i) and (ii) 1= not defined But 1 is defined number as every number can be divide and multiplied by it Hence, provedReport this Argument Pro 0, although it might seem crazy can equal 1.When you find a number's factorial, you are finding the product of all whole numbers less than or equal to it.For example, 3! (Factorial),=3*2*1,or 6Now, google search "0!" or "0 factorial"What did it come out to?It came out to 1.0!=0×0=0=1Therefore, 0 can equal 1(The YouTube channel Numberphile does a great video on thissearch on YouTube, "0!=1")Point 2:PhysicsPhysics states that everything must come to an end.Numbers never end.Therefore, numbers do not exist in and of themselves.0 and 1 are numbersTherefore, 0 and 1 do not existTherefore, they both equal nothingTherefore, 0=1Point 3: Symbols are not universal.0 and 1 are symbolsAliens may use the symbols 0 and 1 to as synonymsThe quantity we call ' 0' does not equal the quantity we call '1'For aliens, however, who is to say that whatvthey call '0' does not equal the quantity they call '1'I did not specify the Arabic Numeral version of these.Ok, let's assume that I did specify that they had to be the Arabic NumeralsPoint 4:The Multiverse Several theories state that every possible outcome encompasses its own theoretical universe.It may be possible that the Arabic Numeral System states that 0=1,making it its own universe.These theories cannot be disproved, so you cannot disprove that in these universes 0=1These universes may have different physics where somehow, 0=1Rebuttal: 0/0 technically is any number you want it to be, since any number*0=0Using this, lets say that 0/0=1 1/1=1If 1/1=1=0/00/0=0 possibly1/1=10=1If 0/1=00/0 (CAN TECHNICALLY)=0, since 0×0=0So 0/0=0 and 0/1=0The 0 and the 1 have to be the same for it to work, so 0=1 Report this Argument Con My friend you are been confused by your own self I agree with 0!=1, zero factorial is equal to 1 , but zero isn't equal to one . I can prove it , If you want to say that 0=1,then Let's see 0=1 And 0!=1 0x0=1 But if we see minutely zero is multiplied only on one side of equal sign So we have to multiply it on both side 0x0=1x0 0=0 Hence zero is equal to zero but not equal to one Again as per your point 2 Physics states that everything must come to an end But the universe never ends Do you wanna say that universe do not exsist? In my terms that rule is not applicable for numbers Hence 1 exists but 0 doesn't Therefore, 1 is not equal to 0 Now your point 3 is not up to mark It seems that you are confused by your self 0 And 1 are used In Encoding They are not symbols , instead they are used to mark existence of matter by counting ! And secondly the numeral 0 was invented in India if 0 wasn't there then the numeral system had been collapse If you say that 0=1 then why is the need of inventing zero . We could place 1 in place of 0 Hence 0can't take place of 1 and hence are not equal There you go wrote g in point 4 1/1 = 1 But 0/0 is not defined Hence your point 4 is meaninglessReport this Argument

Of course the universe exsists. It is a false claim to say that the universe is endless. It is still expanding

@ VITOUROUS

- The problem with your little proof here my friend is the fact that x - y = 0 , & thus 1/(x - y) = 1/0 = W34; (infinity). & so, adding 1 to infinity doesn't change it.
Posted by VITOUROUS 3 years ago
Let x=y. Then

x - y + y = y

x - y + y y
--------- = ---
x-y x-y

y y
1 + --- = ---
x-y x-y

1 = 0
this mathematical proof was discovered by Dr. ken

- This is monumentally ridiculous. How low your IQ can get to achieve such extreme extent of ridiculousness?!

Look, we all know 1 doesnt equal 0. This is just a fun debate
Posted by UndeniableReality 3 years ago
Wow. This is absurd. I'm worried about the future of our species. They still teach basic math in school, right?

You have to think outside of the box
Posted by futurepresident7 3 years ago
0/0=1 works since 0*1=0
While most times it is undefined, here you can plug in any number
As for point 4, there are 10 dimensions. They allow you to make every possible outcome its own reality.
Creativity
Physics does state that everything must come to an end
If shapes dont exist, the squares and circles are equal since they are nothing
Point 3 was just trying to point out that 0 might equal 1 somewhere else
and factorials makes sense since 0!=1
0!=0*0
0*0=0
So,0=1

Forgot to mention Point 4 and your rebuttal. 0/0 is undefined. It isn't any value you want it to be. That's impossible. Point 4 is complete nonsense unless there are some proofs in which you can justify the validity of the premise.

Look, I had to be creative
