Is infinity the reciprocal of zero? Is zero the reciprocal of infinity? It would make sense that they would be--they law in a similar method (anything multiply by zero or infinity outcomes in zero or infinity, for example) and you can"t have actually a number infinity close to zero but not zero (as far as i know.) Also, my simple understanding that the Riemann sphere appears to indicate that due to the fact that infinity and also zero space opposite poles, they must be reciprocals.

You are watching: What is the reciprocal of 0

I do recognize that \$frac10\$ is technically undefined and infinity can"t really be treated like an additional number, but could they be reciprocals in some situations?

So, is \$frac1infty\$ some infinitesimal, or is that zero? and does \$frac10=infty\$?

I"m i m really sorry if this is a stupid and also obvious question, my knowledge of historicsweetsballroom.com in the realm of infinity is... Shaky to say the least.
