∞=1/0
so: 0* ∞=1
so: 0=1
Why is this, or have i made a mistake somewhere in my logic?
Thanks

You probably have made a mistake. Have you learned any arithmetic systems that include a number called ∞? If not, then you made a mistake simply by writing ∞.ojsimon said:Why is this, or have i made a mistake somewhere in my logic?
If by "infinity" you mean "a vague and undefined notion that you don't really know anything about", then you're certainly correct.DaveC426913 said:Also, infinity is not an entity upon which you can do arithmetic.
Just to expand on this...Hurkyl said:You probably have made a mistake. Have you learned any arithmetic systems that include a number called ∞? If not, then you made a mistake simply by writing ∞.
No, it is not possible for 0 to equal 1 when infinity equals 1 divided by 0. This is because division by 0 is undefined, and infinity is not a number that can be used in regular arithmetic operations.
In a logical puzzle, the numbers 0 and 1 can be used as symbols to represent different values. Therefore, in this context, 0 could potentially be used to represent 1, but it does not mean that the actual values of 0 and 1 are equal in regular arithmetic.
Yes, this logic puzzle can be solved using mathematical principles such as algebra and logical reasoning. However, the solution may not align with the traditional rules of arithmetic.
No, this puzzle is not meant to challenge the laws of mathematics. It is a fun and creative way to think about numbers and their representations, but it does not change the fundamental principles of mathematics.
The use of infinity and division by 0 adds an element of complexity to the puzzle and challenges our traditional understanding of numbers and their operations. It allows for a unique and thought-provoking solution to the puzzle.
