## febylailani 3 years ago ∞ * 0 = ? :)

1. akash123

if it's exact zero then product will be zero

2. akash123

or if tends to zero then indeterminate

3. febylailani

but it's infinite..

4. lgbasallote

it's actually an indeterminate form

5. lgbasallote

are you familiar with those?

6. akash123

limit x--->0 ∞ * x = indeterminate when x=0 then ∞ * x =0

7. lgbasallote

same shiz

8. febylailani

is that so? hm, okay, thanks :)

9. akash123

sorry...i m not explaining properly...busy in some work...definitely will catch u later

Like akash123 said initially, any number multiplied by 0 is 0 (no matter how large - including infinitely large numbers) HOWEVER what is likely meant by 0 * infinity in your Calculus course is a value that APPROACHES 0 times one that approaches infinity so it's 9999999999999... * 0.00000000000...1 therefore it's an indeterminate form since we cannot easily determine what the product will be since each factor is "fighting" the other one. For more information, you'd have to give us a specific problem.

okay, thank you so much :)

No problem. :)
