# Why I cannot divide by 0

Why I cannot multiply by 0
ahem.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Division_by_zero

but out of it, 0!=1

:th0nk1ng:
0! = 1 has a whole different explanation regarding the set of rules for factorial functions.

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

Yeah thats the fastest way to answer it, for more proof and whatnot youtube has some videos for that
