I remember seeing a riddle or something like that on the site about proving that 1=/=2. Anyone got a link so we can prove you cannot divide by zero without fucking up gravity and friction?

There is a problem with the divid by zero 1+2 proof. You have to divid everything in the problem. so it would be 0/0 time 1/0=0/0 times 2/0 that would simplfy to 1/0=2/0. Then by multiplying both by zero you would get 1=2. They just skiped a step. Still awesome.

Guys, I managed to divide by Zero and DIDN'T BREAK PHSYICS! Or... Did... or something... anyway

0 / 0 = 1

Why? Because there is exactly one 'nothing' in 'nothing' so there for, you get 1 full nothing, or 1 thing to use as a base, therefore, Dividing by zero IS possible!

This is not true, as the answer would be indeterminate.

Wikipedia explains it pretty well. Consider that division is the inverse of multiplication, which means 6/2 = 3, so n*2 = 6 where n would be 3.

However, when you have an equation like 6/0 = x, the inverse would be 0 * x = 6, and since any number multiplied by 0 is 0, there is no number to satisfy the equation.

Likewise, when you have the equation 0/0 = x, the inverse would then be x * 0 = 0. Since any number multiplied by 0 is 0, every number would satisfy this equation and thus a single number can't be taken as the value of 0/0. Which makes it indeterminate.
