You do seem to enjoy getting your butt kicked.

There is no solution to 0x=1. Your ignorance is showing.

1*1=1. OK.

When you make idiotic comments like "mathematics is broken" or 1/0 = 1, you should expect to be vigorously challenged here EVERY time here, no matter how often you repeat them. Just ask JG, AP and WM. Do you really want to go down in the history of the internet as part that fraternity of washed-up losers? They have been trolling here and other math forums for decades now and have gotten nowhere.
