Since you probably don't understand probability or set theory, here's another one. If you buy n bananas and m coconuts, the total prize you pay is n*(prize of a banana) + m*(prize of a coconut) So every day three people come in the store. Person 1 buys 1 banana and 3 coconuts. Person 2 buys 0 bananas and 2 coconuts. Person 3 buys 3 bananas and 0 coconuts. So if one day the store holds a sale and hands out bananas for 0 dollars and coconuts for 1 dollar, person 1 pays 3 dollars, person 3 pays 0 dollars, and person 2 pays undefined dollars? Nice.

Nothing in mathematics requires us to operate on varying amounts of zero.....a string of zero's with operators is just fine for a solution There is no difference between paying 0 dollars for a fruit and paying undefined for the fruit....again...I offered a solution to by pass this problem...perhaps you do not wish to discuss this but only debate?

Why don't you write some software for a store which computes how much the client should pay for their purchase. Then go explain to them why some clients had to pay an "undefined" number of dollars. Good luck. But at least n/0 works!

And as somebody who has written software for companies: yes, they would definitely care if some of their output got to be "undefined" and I told them to just "interpret it as zero". I'd get fired on the spot.

I do not really believe I invented anything......as the ONLY form of defense standing in front of "multiple additive identities" is the equal sign....... "numerical superstition" It is fortitious that superposition already exists....and can lend credence to this thought....
