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

I just found to never run out of cakes
Wait, wouldn't you eventually end up with a cake that's untouched? Like, at the limit there won't be any people to give the cake to... (I don't think this is a very good analogy for why you can't divide by 0.)
