Yeah, like supermarkets have registers that are programmed in Python. Right...fresh_42 said:Yep. Supermarkets.

But the OP was not asking about division by zero or why 1 = 0.999...fresh_42 said:I know that threads like "division of zero", "why is 1=0.999..." and similar nonsense are very popular.

We can make a reasonable guess by the questions that the OP is asking, both in this thread and the previous ones.fresh_42 said:Why do we tend to think we know what OPs think or know?

Granted that division is equivalent to multiplication by the multiplicative inverse, but at some point prior to introducing modern algebra notions (e.g., groups, rings, fields, and so on) you have to have the ability to actually do division. How else would you calculate ##\frac 3 {4.71}##?
