I am a high school student, and I am doing extension mathematics, and me and the rest of the class always get into big arguments about number planes. I say that on a basic 2d numberline with a parabola or hyperbola, when x = infinity, y = 1/infinity, which I think is zero, but they think otherwise. And I also think 1/0 equals infinity. If this relationship is true, infinity times zero equals one! I know it all comes down to limits but, please, someone label me victorious or put me out of my misery.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

P.S. sorry if this is the wrong newsgroup I wasn't sure.
