Further saying that my rectangles of 0 is undefined is equivalent to saying my rectangle is 0.....my answer of "undefined" still works for the expression of 0 length multiplied by 0 width... the difference you argue between 0 * 0 = undefined 0 * 0 = 0 is meaningless...

To any concerned Since the inability to define operations of zero by zero seems to be an issue...allow the following edit to the op.... All zero's must be accounted for..... operations of 0 by 0 are not expressible as a sum 0 + 0 = 0 + 0 0 * 0 * 0 = 0 * 0 * 0 0/0 = 0/0 negative element of zero or otherwise......extend this thought to operations involving varying amounts of zero inside parenthesis..... The length of a rectangle of 0 multiplied by the width of a rectangle 0 equlas 0 * 0 Last edited by Conway51; April 15th, 2018 at 12:21 PM.

So the area is area=width*length. So 0=0*0 as you just agreed to. Thanks.

so...if post #12 by me nullifies your previous argument....would you offer another?

And to be fare...none of us can "have" a rectangle with the dimension you described..... therefore...the operation is undefined...or defined as 0 * 0... and expression you agreed with....

But fine, let's take some more examples. Let's take some good old sixsided dices, one red, and one green. The probability of coming up with a 7 is 0 of course, since the dice have sides zero. The multiplication rule of probability said that in independent events $$\text{Prob}(A ~\text{and}~B) = \text{Prob}(A) \text{Prob}(B)$$ So the probability of coming up with a 7 on the red dice AND on the green dice, is the probablity of coming up with a 7 on the red multiplies with the probability of coming up with a 7 on the green. Hence 0=0*0.

on a side note....what is the difference between 0 and undefined as the sum......?....lol
