Yep

- The_Beast_Eli

Because anything times zero equals zero, lol

- anonymous

if you are going to give away something to someone there must be someone to take it

- jigglypuff314

here's another way of thinking about it
3*2 = 3 + 3 = 6
3*4 = 3 + 3 + 3 +3 = 12
right?
so it is just the first number
added to itself, the second number of times
so for 1 * 0
you are trying to add 1 zero number of times

thanks @jigglypuff314

- The_Beast_Eli

It's just complicated stuff

Hey what about me?

- anonymous

but then why is infinite times 0 undefined?

- The_Beast_Eli

I answered first

- anonymous

I have read the code of conduct and direct answers are not allowed.
So technically you should be banned @The_Beast_Eli

- The_Beast_Eli

Just annything x 0 EQUALS 0!!!!

- anonymous

)':

- jigglypuff314

because you are trying to add infinity to itself zero times
infinity by itself is not a concrete number

- The_Beast_Eli

No-one reads it

- The_Beast_Eli

duh

- The_Beast_Eli

and I am explaining it

- iYuko

you said you read it when you made this account.

- anonymous

But we take infinity 0 times
so basically we don't even take anything
so it should be 0

- jigglypuff314

here is a better explanation for why the times zero rule does not apply to intinifty
http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/28940/why-is-infinity-multiplied-by-zero-not-an-easy-zero-answer
"The problem is that the laws of addition and multiplication you are using hold for natural numbers, but infinity is not a natural number, so these laws do not apply. "

- The_Beast_Eli

I did?

It said "I will give help, not JUST give direct answers"!

@curtain do you get what I was saying?

- anonymous

The stuff in the link is making me dizzy.

- jigglypuff314

lol sorry
the main point was that infinity is not a defined number to begin with
so timesing it by zero just makes it weirder - can't force something that was not a defined number to magically become a number

- anonymous

but whatever the number is 0 times of that number means we don't even take it into sum
like we did in 3*2
we took the number 3, two times so we got 3+3=6
but if we don't even take any number then it should be 0.

- jigglypuff314

but infinity is not really a number

- anonymous

does it matter?

- jigglypuff314

it does
because you can only really add and subtract and multiply and divide "natural" numbers
infinity is a concept of a number
it is an idea of an impossibly large number
and because it is a concept/idea - and not an actual number. the rules of "natural" numbers do not always apply to it :-/

- anonymous

but integers like -1,-2.. which are not natural numbers can be added right?

- jigglypuff314

aye
my bad
.-.
I meant natural numbers as in number that have a tangible value

- anonymous

thanks :)
