∞·0 is an "indeterminate" expression, meaning that it can have one of many values.

In calculus, you look at how this result was created; looking at how it was created can then lead to a value for that problem. The value might be 0, it might be ∞, or it might be 7 (or any other number).

could Geno or someone else talk me through this some more.  Why isn't it 0?

I watched the video Heureka but I don't get how it helps with 0 * infinty  ?
