No. Dividing by zero is undefined. It does not result in anything.

No. Division by zero is not permitted. An imaginary number results from taking the square root of a negative number.

Does any real number divided by zero result infinity?

You can't divide by zero. But if you take any real number and try dividing it by smaller and smaller numbers that are closer and closer to zero, your result will get closer and closer to infinity.


Is 0 an imaginary number?

This is an interesting question. Looking at complex numbers graphically, zero is at the intersection of the real and imaginary axis, so it is 0 + 0i. But if you square zero, you get zero, which is not a negative number (a pure imaginary, when squared will give a real negative number), so I'd have to say it is not imaginary.


How something divided by zero equal to infinity?

Because zero is nothing. The figure zero isn't actually a number - it's a place-filler. Dividing anything by nothing will always result in the answer infinity.


What best describes a number which results from dividing a rational number by zero?

You can't divide by zero.


Is the zero imaginary number?

An imaginary number is a square root of a negative number. Imaginary numbers have the form bi where b is a non-zero (real number) and i is the imaginary unit, defined as the square root of − 1.if we define 'imaginary numbers' as 'complex numbers having a real part as 'zero' and a non-zero imaginary part'.. 0 doesn't fit in this description. But by, convention and for theoretical symmetry , we'll have to define 'real numbers' in pretty much the same way, and hence 0 would neither be a purely imaginary number or a purely real number.Overall i would say that 0 is a real number. Imaginary numbers only involve square roots of negative numbers.http://wiki.answers.com/Is_the_zero_imaginary_number#ixzz16w9viQWx

What is the result of dividing a number by zero?

You can not divide by zero - it is not defined. Presumably you get infinity, but there are different types of infinity.

Zero is a rational number, not imaginary.

Why a number is not divisible by zero?

To divide a number by zero means the number will be unchanged, same as dividing by 1. Try dividing by zero on a calculator and you will get an undefined error message.

What is the result of the addition of two pure imaginary numbers?

An imaginary number. Think of imaginary numbers as being on a vertical line while real numbers are on a horizontal line. (the lines cross at zero). Adding and subtracting won't change the axis.


Which is a number when you divide it by any number there is answer in whole number?

The only such number is 0, and the answer in each case is 0.For a number other than zero, dividing it by any number will not always result in a whole number.

A complex number might not be a pure imaginary number?

True. Complex numbers have a real part and an imaginary part. If either one of these is zero, the complex number will be a pure real or a pure imaginary.


What are non complex numbers?

A non complex number is a number that does not have any imaginary component. An imaginary component is a non zero factor of the square root of -1, in other words, the imaginary number i.
