Division by zero?

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if this formula would work for division by zero:
10: -8
9: -7
8: -6
7: -5
6: -4
5: -3
4: -2
3: -1
2: 0
1: 1

100 + 100/(0-1)
100 + (100/-1)
100-100 = 0
y for x = 0 is 0
y for x = 2 is equal to 200

The formula also works by applying machete-division lemma .
