Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4infinity is not a number, so you are basically asking "what is purple/purple ?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u cant define an infinity... so infinite/ infinite cant be defined....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0purple and purple is probably equal to a darker purple

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0infinite is not a rational number so cannot be divided.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw: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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4to show you the problem with your idea\[{\infty\over\infty}={\infty+1\over\infty}={\infty^2\over\infty}\]now, are they any different?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what chapter of your text are you in? is this for limits or improper integrals? or something else?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4how could they all have the same solution, and if so what would it be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4If you want to go really deep down the rabbit hole, learn about hyperreal numbers http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperreal_number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im studying trigonometry, i dont know what that limits mean and i just recently researched that L'Hospital rule i didnt even understand a thing 8I

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4maybe, 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0limits are in pre calculus but i havent encountered that hospital rule
