 Pro Zero Divided by Zero is Always Zero , If you have something against this , You can Take up a position and then Later I'll Exlain how B|Report this Argument Con No it isn't and i shall prove why . Multiplication is the simple way a/b=c where bxc=a. The simple view is to think of a group of apples and you are trying to divide them to a number of children equally. When you are doing a/0 =c it means that there exists where 0 x c = a but any number which is multiplied by 0 is 0 so a can only be 0 so you get 0/0=c . So what does this tell you about c ? you know that c can be any number in existence because any number multiplied with 0 is 0....Report this Argument Pro Exactly what you said , anything Multiplied by 0 = 0 There fore , 0/0 can be written as 0 and 1/0 ? Yes Now , 1/0 = Infinity Therefore , 0 * infinity = 0 (since 0 * anything = 0) Thank you :3Report this Argument Con First 1/0 is not infinity. 1/0 does not exist because there is not a number which could be multiplied by 0 do result in 1 . ( 1/0 =c => C x 0 =1 "false ") Next infinty x 0 does not equal 0 because infinity is not as you defined it anything it is everything so it is not a singular number it more like a concept thus you cannot multiply 0 by infinity. The operation is non-sensical in itself. So to rephrase although your assumption was false and cant exist also your second is false.Report this Argument

It depends on the relative sizes of the dividend & divisor.

If the dividend was smaller & the divisor larger,
If the dividend was larger & the divisor smaller,

In his basic 1950 book on Dianetics, L. Ron Hubbard stated
that Absolutes have to be considered logically unobtainable.
Neither Zero nor Infinity exists.
You should also study Quantum Physics.
No matter how small, or large, a volume you observe,
it can't contain zero, or infinite, mass/ energy.

Nobody in their right mind would insist that you can use
Multiplication to solve a problem in Division.

Any number ( above Zero & up to but not including Infinity)
Divided by any small amount (but not Zero)
Would be (almost, but not equal to) Infinity,
NOT ZERO
