Is it possible for an undefined number such a 2/0 to become defined, like if someone where to take the time to do it? Or is that something that is always going to be a "mystery"? Or would 0 be able to go into to an infinite amount of times because 0 is the absence of any number, or would 0 be considered no existant, and therefor will never be defined?
Here's some thoughts on it...
Let's define it as "n".
2/0 = n Multiply both sides by 0 .
2 = 0n
So...what is n ? Any number times 0 is equal to 0 .
So, there is no possible number for n that makes the equation true.
But...what about 0/0 ?
0/0 = x Multiply both sides by 0 .
0 = 0x
Now we can see that any number for x makes this equation true.
So x is undefined, because it can be any number.
