"No, it is only infinity if it has a complex quotient."
Quotient is just a result of a division. Here's a complex quotient for you: 8.54*10^125. It's a FINITE NUMBER. No infinity involved.
"No, it is only infinity if it has...a limit"
Infinity means absence of a limit. How's that for an obvious?
"1/0 by itself does not imply a limit"
And i thought i said 1/0 was infinity. The irony is, this part of your quote, which is BS is contrary to the rest of your quote. saying BS and
contradicting it with another BS is mind blowing.
"It is only infinity in certain cases, not all."
This makes no sense, even in relation to the rest of your post.
"How does it "go to infinity" if it cannot converge on anything?"
Numbers converge when they add up to a finite result, limit that is. Now reread your own quote above.
"Again, it can only converge on infinity via limits."
This sounds like new type of math that i never heard of. If something converges there's a limit. If there's a limit- there's no infinity. Limit=/=
Infinity.

For a mathematician, you sure don't know what complex means.
Infinity means absence of a limit. How's that for an obvious?
This argument is either made of straw (likely since you're quote mining and cut out the middle of it to change what I was saying, unless you intended
to insert a proper ellipsis (eg [...])) or you don't know what a limit is.
What I intended was that it is only infinity if it is approached by a limit.
And i thought i said 1/0 was infinity.
I suggest reading what I said again, what I said was that 1/0 does not imply that you are taking the limit of lim x>0 1/x.
The irony is, this part of your quote, which is BS is contrary to the rest of your quote. saying BS and contradicting it with another BS is

This is a complete non-sequitur, in fact, I don't even know what you're talking about.
This makes no sense, even in relation to the rest of your post.
It makes perfect sense, in one case, you are dividing by a real number, in another, you are dividing by a limit. What's so hard to understand?
Numbers converge when they add up to a finite result, limit that is. Now reread your own quote above.
Umm, what? Did you read what I said?
This sounds like new type of math that i never heard of.
Yeah, they call it "pre-calculus".
If something converges there's a limit. If there's a limit- there's no infinity. Limit=/= Infinity.
I suggest you take a course in Series then.

The irony, I suggest you actually study mathematics before you start making claims that other people are wrong.
What really pee's me off is when non-mathematicians have the audacity to claim that others are wrong when they have no idea what they're talking about
and act all smug about it.
I suggest you at least finish your GED before pretending to be a mathematician.
