DIVISION BY INFINITY

Dividing a number by infinity results zero.

How?

To get answer for the above question, first, lets understand what is infinity.

Positive infinity (+) : A very large infinite positive value.

Negative infinity (-) : A very large infinite negative value.

Consider the number 1.

Divide the number 1 by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 100, 1000, 1000, 10000 and so on.

When 1 is divided by 1, it results 1.

When 1 is divided by 2, it results 0.5.

When 1 is divided by 3, it results 0.3.

In this way, when we keep increasing the value of the number by which we divide 1, the result is getting decreased.

For example, when we divide 1 by 100,000, it results 0.00001.

When we keep increasing the divisor, the result is close to zero.

Therefore, when we divide a number by a very large infinite value, the result is zero.

Note :

When you divide a number by either positive infinity or negative infinity , it will result zero.
