Saying “you don’t understand what I’m saying” is probably not the best way to start out a response, as it already indicates a total dismissal of the opposing argument.
Now with that out of the way, what is dividing to you? Because you say you’re not dividing the pizza into groups, but just dividing the pizza, but what is dividing if it’s not separating a number or thing into a different groups of the same thing?
Ok, I’m going to try and make this really clear here, as I feel that either you’re misunderstanding, you’re just really stubborn, or you’re trolling us. I sincerely hope it isn’t either of the last two.
Starting off, let’s consider what it means to do any mathematical operation. This includes division, multiplication, addition, subtraction, etc. For each there’s an action that must be completed, 1 must be combined or taken away from 4, 6 must be divided into 3 groups, and so on. Therefore we can say mathematical operations must have a completable action to reach a defined, answer.
The dilemma arrises because any operation with 0 as the denominator does not have a possible action for us to take. Like so many have already stated, there is no action that can be taken therefore meaning that there is no defined answer. Leaving it alone doesn’t work here because then there is no action, there is no operation, there is no “math.” Leaving it alone essentially results in the fact 1=1, not the equation 1=1/0.
I hope this makes things clear
