How many people can be fed 0 pizzas each?

I mean, it’s just stupid, right? 0 pizzas for everyone. But it’s actually this question:

CAN YOU DIVIDE BY ZERO?!?!?!?!

The answer: NO.

Answers:

  • Let’s say you had a pizza. If you invited only yourself, then you could have all the pizza! If you invited 9 friends, you could have 1/10 of a pizza! If you actually had 999 other people at your party (are you trying to socialise or do you actually have that many friends?), you would only have 1/1000 of a pizza. If you (meanly) wanted everyone to have 0 pizza parts, how many people? Undefined!
  • So, 12/0 is SOMETHING, right? Let’s say 12/0=x. Then 0x = 12, but that’s not possible because anything multiplied by 0 is 0! (not 0 factorial)
  • 12/4 = 3, right? And 56/7 = 8, right? Multiplication is basically repeated addition, and division is the inverse function of multiplication. So 5/0 = um, 0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0 = STILL ZERO!!!!! SO 5 could not be reached.

So any number divided by 0 is undefined.

Q.E.D.

P.S. this wasn’t a proof, so I could remove that lovely Quod Erat Demonstrandum.
