    is there a way to copy and paste images onto here? because I found a math problem that I can't figure out!

    save your image locally as a .png file and then just attach it.

    what did they do wrong? I can't figure it out!

    you cannot divide by zero

    so dividing both sides by (x-x) is not a valid operation in mathematics

    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 (x-x)=0, it's not exactly dividing by zero... I thought :P

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

    mmm... I guess I see. Man, I was hoping I had found an unsolvable math problem! I guess I'll have to keep looking :)
