1/infinity = 0

2/infinity = 0

1000/infinity = 0

So it means that infinity divide by infinity is always 0

Then, infinity/infinity = 0?1?

When you take calculus, you study situations which approach ∞/∞.

The expression, ∞/∞, is called "indeterminate" because the the problem that created it determines its value.

The value might be ∞, might be zero, might be 23.5, might be -12.75, etc.

So, without knowing the problem that created this situation, you don't really know what the answer should be, and it could be any number, or even ∞.

your wrong you cant divide infinity at all because infinity is endless so if its endlessly going how will it ever be zero? *BOOM*
