John Kuthe... You can't do that math. Nobody can. Nobody's dividing nothing by zero. That would be unthinkable. Nope. It's called mathematically undefined. But in the limit! My son's fiance wants to get rid of her Leaf. It's just too much hassle charging that thing. I'd take it off her hand but I don't have any way to charge it either. That's the breaks. Too much trouble? I just either back or pull in forward to the charging port, park, pop open the charge port, and plug in! My Leaf's out back plugged in right now! John Kuthe... Lots of people believe that they can divide by zero. My guess is that it's the most common mistake in the history of mankind. The number of computer programs that have failed to run because it tried to divide by zero must be epic. That's the breaks. I have degrees in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Nursing. And I know a LOT about math!! by zero is UNDEFINED in math, as I said. But we like in differential calculus look at the way a fraction behaves when the denominator gets smaller and smaller. What happens to the fraction? It gets larger and larger! And based on ALL the parameters of a physical situation such as calculating MPG we see that as the denominator of gallons of gasoline gets smaller and smaller the RATIO we call MPG GOES TO INFINITY!! John Kuthe, RN, BSN, Cannabis Nurse! All the degrees, obfuscation, and rationalizations in the world won't change the fact that you cannot divide by zero. That's the breaks.

You're not wrong, but as the denominator gets really close to zero, the result is generally "close enough for engineering". Which is why calculus is so valuable. My company used to make a supercomputer that did nothing but solve differential equations. Cindy Hamilton

No, div by 0 = undefined. Varies with the convoluted function, defined by boundary conditions of the specific function convoluted! I REMEMBER MY MATH! John Kuthe, RN, BSN, Cannabis NURSE!

Cindy Hamilton I just program my keyboard to beep when the caps lock has been mistakenly locked on. It also beeps when I've unlocked it; easy peasy.
