When 1 is divided by 1, the answer as we know the answer will be 1. Similarly when 2 is divided by 2, 3 is divided by 3 and 4 is divided by 4, we know that the answer will still be equal to 1.

However, is it true that when x is divided by x, the answer will always be 1? If not, when is x divided by x not equal to 1?

When x = 0

ReplyDeleteNo, when x = 0, 0÷0 = ∞

ReplyDeleteMillie

When x=0.

ReplyDeleteBecause when 0/0 = it is infinity!

XD

How do you even get that sign?

ReplyDeleteOh and I agree with Millie and Jun Hui. My fault.

Let's put this in Mathematical terms.

Let x = 0

x / x = ?

0 / 0 = ?

0 / 0 = ∞

By the way, why is it infinity again?

If x = 0, the ans would be ∞.

ReplyDeleteIf x ≠ 0, then the ans would always be 1, since x = x.

MouseHunt

when x = 0

ReplyDeletethe factor would be ∞

When x is 0, then 0÷0=∞

ReplyDeleteWhen x is 0, then the answer will be 0÷0 = ∞ instead of 1.

ReplyDeleteNo, when x÷x, the ans would always be 1 as long as x≠0, as 0÷0=∞

ReplyDeleteNo, x/x will not always be equal to one. It is not equal to 1 when x is 0. This is because 0/ 0 = ∞.

ReplyDeleteWhen x is 0, then the answer will be 0÷0 = ∞ instead of 1.

ReplyDeleteno, when x = 0, the answer will not be 1, but ∞

ReplyDeletewhen x is the number 0

ReplyDeletewhen it is 0 or a negative.

ReplyDeletewait, my bad, if its a negative it still is one

ReplyDeleteWhen x = 0, x/x = ∞

ReplyDeleteKimberly

yeah... i agree with all of your...

ReplyDeletelet x be 0,

x divide by x, its infinity... Cannot be solved...

When x = 0

ReplyDeleteBut in algebra, the unknown is not usually 0. But in this case x=0, because it is the only value in which this principle applies to.
