Division by \(0\) is undefined, so \(1\) cannot be divided by \(0\).

1 divided by 0 = infinity. (There is some LaTeX trouble today )

what is 1 divided by 0?

Anything divided by 0 is undefined.  1 divided by 0 is not infinity, because infinity is not a number.

The correct expression is:  The limit of 1 divided by X as X approaches 0 is infinity.

This can be said because in this concept the value of X is an asymptote and never reaches infinity, in fact never can reach infinity.

No, it is NOT    ..... it is UNDEFINED

Look at this        1/0 = inf    multiply both sides by 0

1 = 0 * inf     Do you think this is true????   It isn't. ElectricPavlov  Mar 10, 2020
