1. ## Math Question

What kind of math would result if 0 divided by any number is unsolvable, but any number divided by zero equals zero?

2. It would make me re-imagine the concept and perspective of infinity vs. nothingness

Why is it claimed that any number divided by 0 = infinity? It's just undefined.

0 = infinitesimal

so diving by zero = almost infinite number of fractions =infinity

Dividing by zero is literally not dividing at all, because there is literally nothing to divide by, even given that 0 is technically a number.

(1/0) is simply the inverse of 0. If 0 is exactly nothing, then what is the conceptual inverse of exactly nothing?

You can't find the inverse of nothing.

And that is because nothing is a quality of that which does not exist. It is merely a reference for those of us in the realm of existence to refer to things that are not currently, have not been currently, or will not be. Nothing, therefore, is the causation of the existence of existence, its juxtaposition (as nothing has no properties, and can not have an exact inverse).

Nothing, then, has no physical representation, nor does it exist.

Division is the process divulging the exact amount of times a number can go into a number.

If 0 represents the concept of nothing, then its absence of properties leads to the realization that no matter what number you divide by zero, there will never be an exact number of times zero can go into a number, for 0's absence of properties consequently means that it is devoid of any value. Thus, the only way to represent a division by zero, is by infinite, as that is the closest entity that can reach an exact inverse of something that is devoid of all value (that which contains all value, which is realistically improbable, something, which multiplied by zero, equals 1 (represented by (1/0)). It's the mathematical personification of the existential confusion arisen from Nothing versus Something (Something usually arising from Nothing).

To answer your main question: I would assume that the change would invert all coordinate plane graphs.

I don't know what's existential about it. But I think the idea that the answer is 'infinite' or 'indeterminate' comes from the fact that the solution to 0/0 can be proven to amount to any Real, with its limit being at infinity.
