    infinity is not a number, so you are basically asking "what is purple/purple ?"

    u cant define an infinity... so infinite/ infinite cant be defined....

    purple and purple is probably equal to a darker purple

    I don't know about that, I've never tried to divide purple ;)

    infinite is not a rational number so cannot be divided.

    |dw:1349360636661:dw| now if you allow this whole number system will collapse. These are called indeterminate forms and you do your best to avoid these things. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indeterminate_form

    its an undefine case because any number divide by infinity = zero and infinity divide by any number is = infinity so here you cannot consider any of these case separetly so its undefine case

    if you have given limx-->infinity then 1/infinity=0

    undefined?? but is it possible to solve?

    L'hospital is only for limits of functions there is no function in infty/infty

    yeah there are few cases where you can solve this kind of stuff ... but you better come up with problems where you encounter it ... it would be concrete.

    to show you the problem with your idea\[{\infty\over\infty}={\infty+1\over\infty}={\infty^2\over\infty}\]now, are they any different?

    If you want to go really deep down the rabbit hole, learn about hyperreal numbers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperreal_number

    Im studying trigonometry, i dont know what that limits mean and i just recently researched that L'Hospital rule i didnt even understand a thing 8-I

    i wonder if "/" is defined for so called infinity........... infi is representation of a v.large number.........it doesnt say how large and if it is defined.....say it somethin like a v.l num/ a v.l deno so denom can be <= num so it can be anythin so........the qn is not complete...... :P r is it's jus a troll

    maybe, but l'hospital involves taking the derivative, and derivatives are a part of calc, not precalc sometimes they try to throw it into precalc it is hard to understand l'hospital without understanding the derivative
