conway 27 Posted December 6, 2017 In every R there exists an integer zero element ( -0 ) ( -0 ) =/= 0 |0| = |-0| ( -0 ) : possesses the additive identity property ( -0 ) : does not possess the multiplication property of 0 ( -0 ) : possesses the multiplicative identity property of 1 The zero elements ( 0 ) and ( -0 ) in an expression of division can only exist as: (0)/( -0 ) 0 + ( -0 ) = 0 = ( -0 ) + 0 ( -0 ) + ( -0 ) = 0 1 + ( -0 ) = 1 = ( -0 ) + 1 0 * ( -0 ) = 0 = ( -0 ) * 0 1 * ( -0 ) = 1 = ( -0 ) * 1 n * ( -0 ) = n = ( -0 ) * n Therefore, the zero element ( -0 ) is by definition also the multiplicative inverse of 1 . And as division by the zero elements requires ( - 0 ) as the divisor ( x / ( -0 )) is defined as the quotient ( x ) . 0 / n = 0 0 / ( -0 ) = 0 n / ( -0 ) = n 0 / 1 = 0 1 / ( -0 ) = 1 1 / 1 = 1 ( 1/( -0 ) = 1 ) The reciprocal of ( -0 ) is defined as 1/( -0 ) 1/(-0) * ( -0 ) = 1 (-0)^(-1) = ( 1/( -0 ) = 1 (-0)(-0)^(-1) = 1 = ( -0 )^(-1) Any element raised to ( -1 ) equals that elements inverse. 0^0 = undefined 0^(-0) = undefined 1^0 = 1 1^(-0) = 1 Therefore, all expressions of ( -0 ) or ( 0 ) as exponents or as logarithms are required to exist without change. Therefore, division by zero is defined. Therefore, the product of multiplication by zero is relative to which integer zero is used in the binary expression of multiplication. 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

All representations of (-0) as exponents and logarithms work like 0 and without change from 0 thank you for your time and reply Edited December 6, 2017 by conway 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Bignose 945 Posted December 6, 2017 How do you handle the fact that there are mathematical proofs that there is only one unique zero that obeys the axiomatic rules for how a zero operates? 0 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites
