Please follow the following arguments.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

5/3=1.66

5/2=2.5

5/1=5

5/0.5=10

.....

....

5/0=infinity

and then 5/(-1)= -5

What you see? As the denominator is decreased the right hand side answer increases. The denominator becomes 3 then 2,then 1, then 0,then -1 ; and the answer increases, therefore -5 must be grater than infinity.

Where's the flaw. Please illustrate.
