What do you mean? I think we can hang on the ceiling together. After all, it's a family rope! Otherwise, what's the point on having a family if you can't even hang out together to enjoy life :)

As a workaround, take the limit of the thing you are trying to divide the thing by 0 and divide it by x as x approaches 0

yea then if the numerator is a rational number
since the denominator is approaching zero it'll be positive or negative infintiy depending on the sign of the numerator

The limit, as the number of people I'm dividing cake for approaches zero, the number of slices approaches...

Blitz has a point, if we are taking the cake example, you can't do limits, this is a real life scenario.
