see any pattern? Towards what 'number' does the result *tend* as the denominator tends towards 0, but can't reach? Infinity. I always found it slightly odd that while x/0 is undefined, x/infinity is just 0 ... if you do some 'manipulation' ... :rolleyes:

EDIT - oh dear ... this has just turned into a maths debate :( Never thought I'd see the day when I would be debating maths
