Now I expect that most of you on this forum would be familiar with the equality between point nine reoccurring and one:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

0.999...=1

If your not familiar please review https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0.999...

Now this equality can be used to imply something else, which is rather heterodox, consider the below:

Point nine reoccurring is only one infinith smaller than one

0. 999 ... +(1/∞)= 1

But as point nine reoccurring and one are equal, point nine reoccurring is one infinith smaller than itself

0. 999 ... +(1/∞)= 0. 999 ...

It is only logical then to conclude that one infinith is equal to zero

0. 999 ... − 0. 999 ... +(1/∞)= 0. 999 ... − 0. 999 ...

1/∞= 0

Which can in turn be inverted to reveal that infinity is equal to one divided by zero

∞ =1/0∎

As the mathematical consensus is that division by zero is undefined, why is the proof incorrect?
