Is infinity the reciprocal of zero? Is zero the reciprocal of infinity? It would make feeling that they would certainly be--they behave in a similar means (anything multiplied by zero or infinity outcomes in zero or infinity, because that example) and you can"t have actually a number infinity close to zero however not zero (as much as ns know.) Also, my simple understanding of the Riemann sphere seems to imply that because infinity and also zero room opposite poles, they must be reciprocals.

You are watching: What is the reciprocal of zero

I do understand that \$frac10\$ is technically undefined and infinity can"t yes, really be treated like another number, yet could they be reciprocals in part 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 understanding of dearteassociazione.orgematics in the kingdom of infinity is... Shaky come say the least.
