anything divided by zero is gives an infinitely large answer: x/0 = ∞

I need it for school task. Please give explanation for this question

I had a physics test. The question was about that:2000/0 = ?my answer is 0. And that is true

Another way to understand the nature of division by zero is by considering division as a repeated subtraction. For example, to divide 13 by 5, 5 can be subtracted twice, which leaves a remainder of 3 – the divisor is subtracted until the remainder is less than the divisor. The result is often reported as 13 ÷ 5 = 2 remainder 3.But, in the case of zero, repeated subtraction of zero will never yield a remainder less than zero. Dividing by zero by repeated subtraction results in a series of subtractions that never ends*

i agree with the above posters that it is a limiting process.one question from me now, hopefully it doesn't derail this thread, but how did RD and lightarrow produce the infinity symbol in the post?

So what is 2 x 0 ?? [] [] [:I]
