"Cantor's proof is one of the wonders of the world, like the hanging gardens of Babylon or the pyramids of Egypt." -Palle YourgrauGeorg Cantor, German (1845-1918), was interested in Mathematics from a young age. Cantor was also of a philosophical bent so he was...
 By: Ernest Capraro Let's get to know our four-sided friends. Sure enough, the quadrilateral is named quite literally. That's "quad" for four, and "lateral" for side. (You didn't think football players made up the word, did you?) But to make sure that everyone is on the same...
Division by zero is it really Impossible
By: Bennett Kalafut
Division by zero is impossible in ordinary, everyday number systems such as the rational numbers (whole number fractions), algebraic numbers (solutions to polynomials with whole number coefficients) or real numbers (numbers on the number line). If it were possible, zero would be equal to one...

The purpose of this article is to give a basic introduction to the world of calculus and its uses in mathematics, all of the sciences and the financial markets, to name a few. Put simply, calculus is the study of limits and infinite series. By...

What is known to us simply as "calculus" is the "infinitesimal calculus", knownto mathematicians as "analysis", a branch of mathematics hinted at by ancientand medieval figures like Eudoxus, Archimedes and Alhazen, synthesized byNewton and Liebniz, and put onto rigorous and recognizable footing by the likesof...
Understanding plane geometry
By: Steven Mars
Plane geometry consists of straight lines, points, and curved lines in a plane.A plane is a two-dimensional object that is an infinite square composed ofall the points within the square. A point has zero dimensions. One postulate ofgeometry states that two points determine a...
Division zero Math Mathematics Abstract Idea
By: Francis Jock
Consider Zero, if you will. What is zero if not an abstract idea, an elusive concept that you cannot see, nor hear, and certainly not touch, taste or smell. It is the stuff of dreams and nightmares. Imagine falling endlessly towards it, or away from...

In geometry, a square is defined as a shape with four sides the same length (and with each side at a 90 degree angle to the others). But squares are very simple, which makes them a great way to start learning the basics of geometery...
Division by zero is it really Impossible
By: Brian Palmer
In mathematics it is possible to divide by zero under some circumstances. HOWEVER, no matter how you define what it means to divide by zero, the mathematics that results is always inconsistent with other aspects of mathematics. As a result, mathematicians ASSUME that division by...
Division by zero is it really Impossible
By: Chris Nichol
The answer to whether any number can be divided by zero is pure and simple no, and that is how it works, there isn't any circumstances in which you can argue things can be divided by zero and come out with an answer. For examples...
