I know there’s enough of you math munchkins out there to address this. While I do a lot of grunts in the trenches math every day, I don’t frequent the frontiers. So I must humbly ask the answer to this question.
What if, instead of division by zero being undefined (“we won’t go there”) it was defined as equalling infinity?
I’m not claiming some revelation or anything, I just want one of you who can speak to the subject to let me understand.
Our regular math (i.e., quantifiable small numbers) wouldn’t change. Carpenters would still be able to get a set of stairs put up as before.
What cosmological cataclysm would this change in assuumptions entail?
