    What if math is wrong?

    LOL...sorry but thats funny. Well, you have a good question there. The thing about math is that it is created from logic. Changing math would mean changing the logic from which it came, which would mean that this new logic would apply to everything as did the logic before. So it seems to me that...

    Division by ZERO

    Im not sure what u mean by a new number system, but no, you cant use dividing by zero in math because it leads to ilogical anwers. Let me show you an example... a = b a^2 = b^2 a^2 - b^2 = a^2 - ab (a+b)(a-b) = a(a-b) a + b = a a + a = a 2a = a 2 = 1 Obviously this cant be right? 2...

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    Wrong, i have a good calculator, a TI-89. When I put 0^0 it gives me 1. So do all other graphing calculators that i've used.

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    lol, thats a great point. It bothers me very much actually, which is why i posted that question here. My common sense told me that it should be 0, then I saw that 0^0 = 0^x/0^x = 0/0 = undefined. This is what bothered me, because supposidly 0^0 = 1, at least it does where ever ive seen.

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    Wow, that all makes sense to me, thanks all. I understand why 0!=1 and why 0/0=undef. As for 0^0...its basicly dependent on the situation and sometimes convenience, right?

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    Thanks all for your responses, i think i understand why 0/0 is undefined and why 0!=1 But i still dont understand the case of 0^0, because it DOES = 1, it isnt undefined.

    Why does 0/0 = undefined?

    Hello, i was just wondering....why does 0/0 = undefined. To me, it works mathematicaly. 12/[ ] = 4 fill in the blank...its 3 check the answer...3*4 = 12 woohoo! 12/0 = 12 0*12 = 12 whoops that doesnt work! 12/0 = 0 0*0 = 12 whoops, doesnt work either! I can see why that...

    1 = 2? whats going on here?

    1 = 2?? whats going on here?? Haha, just wanted to show this, because its just so funny. I'm sure some of you have seen it before. a = b a^2 = b^2 a^2 - b^2 = ab - b^2 (a+b)(a-b) = b(a-b) a+b=b b+b=b 2b=b 2=1
