All real numbers in between (lots)                    ...........(+.000000000000001 N) / (+.000000000000001 N) = 1All the real numbers between - N and + N, when divided by themselves mustequal 1. Therefore 0/0 = 1.Now, if N was infinity, and it was divided by the same N, it too would equal1. However, one must be sure that it is the same infinity from the same set.You can't be too sure about that because a number series converges atinfinity losing some properties in the process. If N was infinity....			N + N = N			N * N = N			N - N should = 0, but maybe not.			N / N should be 1, but maybe not.Such a problem does not exist at zero, therefore the proof stands.Cheers,Dick Johnson-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-Richard B.
