 Pro 1st round is acceptance. Pro must say that it is possible to divide by zero. Con must say that it is not possible to divide by zero.Report this Argument Con you can't divide by zero because it isn't really a number. you can't have "zero parts" when distributing or dividing something evenlyReport this Argument Pro Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, Trolls and Pedobears, I present to you, how to divide by zero, oh and don't worry the world is not going to end, I discovered it a couple of months ago. Enjoy. Do you agree that a simple division problem can be cut into this: 12/4 = 3 = 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 = 4 * 3 = 12. Now let us take this same principle with dividing by zero. J = any number you want because you are special. J/0 = 0 = 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0... = 0*(infinity) = 0. The reason it is 0 (times) infinity is because if you allow 0 to keep adding up by its self then it will never reach J so therefore it will be an infinite number. Anything times 0 is 0. Which proves anything divided by zero is zero. Thank you, vote Pro, and enjoy your day.Report this Argument Con Meli3792 forfeited this round. Pro Let it be known that it is possible to divide by zero and my opponent agrees with me. To bad, I wanted to see what people said about my theory. Vote Pro.Report this Argument Con Meli3792 forfeited this round.

c/0 doesn't equal 0 because that would mean that 0 times 0 equal c, which would mean 0 times 0 equal every number which makes it meaningless, hence why it's called undefined.

Historical accidents
On September 21, 1997, a divide by zero error on board the USS Yorktown (CG-48) Remote Data Base Manager brought down all the machines on the network, causing the ship's propulsion system to fail.[2][3].
