Ok let a and b be non zero numbers(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

([itex]\frac{a}{b}[/itex]) / ([itex]\frac{1}{0}[/itex])=0

But shouldn't that be undefined since you would get a fraction like this [itex]\frac{1}{0}[/itex] which isn't allowed. Since it got us to a "wrong" answer, that would mean our assumption was wrong. Please tell me where I went wrong.

Not homework just got thinking about how 1/0 is undefined while 0/1 isn't

(I typed everything wrong please look below)
