Value of 1/(1-1/0) at 0

    [SOLVED] value of 1/(1-1/0) at 0

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is the function
    [tex]f(x)=\frac{1}{1-\frac{1}{x}}[/tex]​
    defined at [tex]x=0?[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Since we have division by zero in the denominator, I'm assuming that it isn't. Am I correct?

    Yes, 1/0 is NOT defined. You don't have to "assume" anything!
