Dividing by Zero

Hello, welcome. This is Colin Power from in2infinity. And this broadcast is about dividing zero by 00 divided by zero. A lot of people have suggested that you can’t divide by zero. And I can see what they’re kind of saying from conventional mathematics. It doesn’t really make much kind of sense. But then again, if you think about it, dividing zero and not having an answer, well, it does have an answer. It’s actually one, but it just doesn’t look like it has an answer of one. But we can work out logically so this is how we’re going to do that. We’re going to work out how to divide zero. So let’s have a quick go. Firstly, let’s just say here’s, here’s the number zero. You’re gonna take the number line, zero in the middle, okay, we all agree and plus one on one side and negative one on the other. We can place that on the number line. Fantastic. And we can divide that number line in half. Does everyone agree? Yes, good. We can do that on negative side. And so we’re going to divide that in half on the positive side and half on the negative side. And let’s write the numbers. Now. We’re going to write naught point five there and point five there. We have to distinguish which one is which Oh, yeah, that’s gonna have to be a positive that’s gonna have to be a negative there. The antastic that so now we’ve made the positive and negative that so we can see what’s the number 0.5. And so let’s what happens if we just remove than point five and then we’re going to dump 2.5 And what we get is a plus zero left on one side and we get negative zero left on the other side. So as you can see, there’s a plus zero and negative zero. Okay, fantastic. So if we can times those two Palasa negative zeros together, then what do we get? Three times a plus times a zero, or just a few times a plus and a negative? We’re going to get a negative episode. That’s going to be zero squared, isn’t it? Negative zero. So we’ve got that. So can we divide then if we can multiply? Yes, of course we can. Yeah, and when we divide, let’s see what happens with the other numbers. If we divide one by one, we get the number one. Yep. And we will agree we can divide one by one fantastic. And if we divide two by one, we get the number two, two divided by one, three divided by one also equals three. So equals the same number. Oh, looks a zero divided by one must be zero. Yeah. So one other thing if we, if we divide other numbers by zero to see, if we divide number two by zero, we get 03 by zero, we get 04000 is infinite, isn’t it? Yeah. So anything divided by zero equals always equals zero. So therefore, zero divided by zero or zero equals zero. There we are. So, but what kind of zero? Well, we can distinguish between the types of zero for work in a fourth dimension of mathematic. Otherwise, we got no timeline to spread the zero out as it were. But once we do, we’ve got that, you know, as we saw on the on the calculator, a one to four ratio, and that allows us to have four directions of an underlying squaring, in other words, yeah. And once we do that, then we can resolve much of those conundrums about zero because zero is a little bit like one, you know, one squared looks like one one to the power three looks like one. It all looks like one on a number line, and so does so does zero, because there’s special kinds of numbers, the unit numbers, and when we square zero forms across and when we square root zero, it collapses across and when we square one, it forms the square in all directions, squaring the infinity, we get the PI function as a function of then the infinite expanding into into into a square of four squares. That’s what happens when we square one. So fantastic. Thank you very much everyone for tuning in. You can find out more about rotational squaring on our website into in2infinity.com. And then you can find a little bit more about how the zero works as well. But that was just a little comeback about some of the questions about you can we divide zero and you know it says div naught, but that div naught on a computer you know, warning error is programmed in there to say that there is an error, we could just as easily take that error and pump it into another value inside a computer. We don’t have to make it an error. We can we can carry on the error. Why not? We might as well just expand on the error and develop a new type of zero for the computer. Okay, there we are. That’s that. So thank you very much for listening. And just to let you know that if you want to know any more, we’ll be making regular broadcasts so you can tune in and get updates by signing up to our mailing list. Thank you very much. And my name is Colin Powell from into infinity. Have a great day and we’ll catch up with you again shortly. Thank you. Bye
