Subject: Re: / by 0

First to fall, I would like to discuss how division process works. eg. 8/4 solution to this problem is 2 because we can subtract 4 from 8 two times. While in case of division with zero we can subtract zero from any number infinite times. So in case we divide any number with zero answer is infinity.
