3 divided by 0 is 3
Debate Rounds (5)
That is not 3/0=0 That is 3-(nothing or 0)=3
0+0+0=0 or 3/0=0
it can not be an equation, only an explanation, it just means 3
or $395+0+$600. Yes this could be done with out the zero but you need the zero when doing rent for 30,000 tenants over the last 20 year or 7,200,000 rent payments. No one can remember the no payments when there is that many numbers to add.
"3 sodas cant be shared by 0 people, so you have 3 sodas"
You not setting up your equation correctly, because your not writing it correctly. Its 3 sodas shared with 0 people, so 0 people have sodas.
(Sodas)/(Times shared)=(people I have GIVEN sodas to)
(Sodas)/(Times shared)=(HOW MANY SODAS I HAD)
Your right and that is why the answer is 0.
You have given 0 sodas, to 0 people, 0 times, or 3*0=0. Three non actions have had no effect on anything because they never happened.
The answer only becomes 3 because you are doing this:
I have three sodas. I cant give anyone a soda. No one is there. No matter how many times you tell me to.
This is 4 variables:
I have three sodas: That is 3 for the amount of sodas you have.
I cant give anyone a soda: 0 because you have not done any actions because it is not possible to give something tosome one that is not there
No one is there: 0 for the amount of people that are there
No matter how many times you tell me to: 0 for the amount of times you can complete this loop of events and successfully give someone a soda.
This is why your agrument is wrong:
You have expressed this as 3*0=3 in this debate. This only 3 out of the 4 variables. Your missing a number.
In some other debates, on this site, you have used 3*0(3). This is every close to the right answer. () is the same as * in math. So that equation is 3*0*3 that answere is also 0.
The correct way of stating the formual is like this:
You simply add all 4 variables. 3+0+0+0=3
In math we simplify, or try to write the equalition using less characters.
I have 3 and 0,0,0. I can use less characters by expressing that I have 3 zeros.
In math * means the word of. So I have 3 of the zeros.
In math there is no symbol for the word the. I left with a bit of bad grammor with 3 of zero.
We still have 3+ from the beginning of the equation.
So now its 3+3 of zero.
In math we use () to seperate our bad grammer sentaces from the rest of the equation.
That gives us 3+(3 of 0) or 3+(3*0)=3
Your logical agrument word problem is 3+(3*0)=3. This still means 3*0=0

Reasons for voting decision: Pro tried to make a mathematical equation into a literal sense. Which would be inaccurate in this case, because Pro stated the Premise was a mathematical equation. 3 divided by 0 is 3 (3/0=3) Mathematically, this equation is "undefined" as you cannot divide by zero.
