think of 10/x and lets say x starts off as being equal to 10 and then slowly reduce its value down towards zero. what happens to the value of 10/x?

it's divided by zero... but even though (xx)=0, it's not exactly dividing by zero... I thought :P

it IS dividing b zero. otherwise you could prove any relation, e.g.:\[6*0=19*0\]\[\therefore 6=19\]
