Dr James Anderson, from the University of Reading's computer science department, says his new theorem solves an extremely important problem - the problem of nothing.

4/4 = 1 3/3 = 1 2/2 = 1 1/1 = 1 0/0 = 1

That was actually solved 1199 years ago, by Dr.goodfornuttin...!

I see two incorrect statements:

1. 0-1 = (1 / 0) = ¥ , is not correct

2. ¥-1 = (1 / ¥) = 0 , is not correct

I see two incorrect statements:

1. 0-1 = (1 / 0) = ¥ , is not correct

2. ¥-1 = (1 / ¥) = 0 , is not correct

0 -1 = (1 / 0) = ¥ and ¥ -1 = (1 / ¥) = 0 are incorrect and 0 -1 is a new number I, the Hyper-infinite number.

1 - Reciprocal Operation with Inequality

a > b

taking the reciprocal of both side causes the > to change to <.

reciprocal of  a > b  is  a-1 < b-1

 a > b a-1 < b-1 a b a-1 b-1 1 0.25 1.00000 4.00000 1 0.5 1.00000 2.00000 2 1 0.50000 1.00000 2 1.5 0.50000 0.66667 10 5 0.10000 0.20000 10 9 0.10000 0.11111 1000 500 0.00100 0.00200 1000 900 0.00100 0.00111

2 - Apply Reciprocal Operation of Inequality to the Inequality of  ¥ -1 > 0

¥ -1 > 0

the reciprocal of  ¥ -1 > 0  is  ¥ < 0 -1

if the inequality  ¥ < 0 -1  is true, then 0 -1 is a new number, I, and exists outside the set of Real numbers or Hyper-infinite.

the number I is analogous to the number i = Ö-1

3 - Some other additional inequalities and equalities

0 ¹ ¥ -1

0 -1 ¹ ¥

I = 0 -1  Hyper-infinite number

0 ´ I = 1

1 ´ I = I

n ´ I = nI

0 ´ nI = n

a is Real and bI is Hyper-infinite, then the sum of a and bI is complex and is  a + bI

Something of a proof why ¥ -1 ¹ 0 and ¥ -1 > 0

1 - If ¥ -1 = 0 , then 0 + ¥ -1 = 0

0 + ¥ -1 = 0

0 + ( 1 / ¥ ) = 0

0 ( ¥ / ¥ ) + ( 1 / ¥ ) = 0

( ( 0 * ¥ ) / ¥ ) + ( 1 / ¥ ) = 0

( 0 * ¥ + 1 ) / ¥ = 0

0 * ¥ + 1 = 0 * ¥

( 0 * ¥ ) - ( 0 * ¥ ) + 1 = ( 0 * ¥ ) - ( 0 * ¥ )

0 + 1 = 0

1 = 0

1 = 0 , is false \  ¥ -1 ¹ 0

2 - If ¥ -1 > 0 , then 0 + ¥ -1 > 0

0 + ¥ -1 > 0

0 + ( 1 / ¥ ) > 0

0 ( ¥ / ¥ ) + ( 1 / ¥ ) > 0

( ( 0 * ¥ ) / ¥ ) + ( 1 / ¥ ) > 0

( 0 * ¥ + 1 ) / ¥ > 0

0 * ¥ + 1 > 0 * ¥

( 0 * ¥ ) - ( 0 * ¥ ) + 1 > ( 0 * ¥ ) - ( 0 * ¥ )

0 + 1 > 0

1 > 0

1 > 0 , is true \  ¥ -1 > 0

When dealing with 0 and ¥ it is better to treat them as if they were variables first and do normal math operations first, then work the final equation or inequality. There are times when 02 ¹ 0 and ¥2 ¹ ¥ , much like X2 does not exactly equal X.

Also,  0 * ¥   is a non-reduceable number much like 2i is a non-reduceable number, it is what it is, a number all by itself.

In addition, ¥ -1  is the infinitesimal unit and is exactly and only exactly the first number after 0.

And just a bit more:

0 * ¥  = n

( 0 * ¥ ) / ¥ = n / ¥

0 ( ¥ / ¥ ) = n / ¥

0 ( 1 ) = n / ¥

0 = n / ¥ , if and only if n = 0 * ¥

0 * ¥ = n

( 0 * ¥ ) / 0 = n / 0

¥ ( 0 / 0 ) = n / 0

¥ ( 1 ) = n / 0

¥ = n / 0

¥ = n / 0 , if and only if n = 0 * ¥

The mathematical operation of X / X = 1 must be continuous for all Real values of X; including {-¥, 0, ¥}.

1 - If X / X = 1, then -¥ / -¥ = 1

-¥ / -¥ = 1

-¥ = 1 * -¥

-¥ = -¥, true \ -¥ / -¥ = 1

2 - If X / X ¹ 1, then -¥ / -¥ ¹ 1

-¥ / -¥ ¹ 1

-¥ ¹ 1 * -¥

-¥ ¹ -¥, false \ -¥ / -¥ = 1

3 - If X / X = 1, then 0 / 0 = 1

0 / 0 = 1

0 = 1 * 0

0 = 0, true \ 0 / 0 = 1

4 - If X / X ¹ 1, then 0 / 0 ¹ 1

0 / 0 ¹ 1

0 ¹ 1 * 0

0 ¹ 0, false \ 0 / 0 = 1

5 - If X / X = 1, then ¥ / ¥ = 1

¥ / ¥ = 1

¥ = 1 * ¥

¥ = ¥, true \ ¥ / ¥ = 1

6 - If X / X ¹ 1, then ¥ / ¥ ¹ 1

¥ / ¥ ¹ 1

¥ ¹ 1 * ¥

¥ ¹ ¥, false \ ¥ / ¥ = 1

7 - If Y = 1 and is continuous for all Real values in the function Y = f(X) and f(X) = X / X, then Y = 1 = X / X and is continuous for all Real values

Y = 1 = X / X

Y * X = 1 * X = X

Y * X = 1 * X = X

1 * X = 1 * X = X

X = X = X, true if and only if Y = 1

-¥ = -¥ = -¥, true if and only if Y = 1

0 = 0 = 0, true if and only if Y = 1

¥ = ¥ = ¥, true if and only if Y = 1

Excuse me, but I think I'm missing the strong tie between lotteries and mathematics in this thread.
