Math madness 0 by 0 equals to 1 by 2

Math Madness

If this is proved to be correct, everything we have learned in our life so far in Mathematics will go wrong.

Still we can prove it.

0/0 = 1/2

Here is the proof,

We can write down 0/0 as

0/0 = 100 – 100 / 100 – 100

It can be further derived as

= 10 x 10 – 10 x 10 / 102 - 102

= 10 (10 – 10) / 102 - 102

= 10(10 – 10) / (10 – 10) (10 + 10)

(10 – 10) is common in numerator and denominator , so we can cancel it.

= 10 / (10 + 10)

= 10 / 20

= 1 / 2

So 0/0 = 1/2

The actual FACT

Although 0/0 = 1/2 is proved to be correct. We cannot substitute this proof in any other form of calculations.

So what is the drawback behind this proof?

We all know that zero is neither a positive nor a negative number. So mathematically zero cannot be derived further. However true the derivation is, its wholly an invalid proof. So our derivation is just a bit of cheating.
