Knowing less then others about nothing,

but

knowing more about nothing then others know about nothing

in that manner they know nothing

matters to those that care about nothing.

Where by nothing can't be nothing as it surely is discribing something even if that something is clearly nothing

Which makes me ponder if all our math is incorrect starting with nothing (0) and it all should start with 1.

So can we chnge fundamental for a shift in perceptions to solve some age old problems

Like divide by 0 as undefined.

X= a / b

A = x*b

Shift everything

(X+1) = ( (a+1)/(b+1) ) =>> X = ((a+1)/(b+1) )- 1

(a+1)= (x+1)(b+1) =>> (a+1)=xb+x+b+1=>> a=xb+x+b

Counter intuitive is that the input values shift down to solve

For example if we want to know 16/2 is 8 we shift all the numbers down and to read the answer we shift it back up 1.

Testing

A=15

B=1

X=?

x+1=(15+1)/(1+1)

x = (16/2) -1

x = 7

15=(7*1)+(7+1)

How about 21/3=7

x=(20+1)/ (2+1) - 1

x = (21 / 3 )- 1

x = 6

20=(2*6)+6+2

more stuff

how about 18 / 0 = undefined

since zero is 1, then we shift down

x+1 =( 17 + 1 ) / (0+1)

x = 17

a=xb+x+b

17 = (17 * 0) + (17 + 0 )

17 = 17

how about negative numbers:

easily solvable using the above function by using positive numbers and * -1 at the answer

if the number is - / + or leaving it positive if the numbers are - / -

what about the case of x = 1? and b = 1

X = ((a+1)/(b+1) )- 1

0 = ( a + 1 ) / (0+1) - 1

1 = (a+1 )/ 1

1 = a +1

0 = a

a=xb+x+b

0 = 0*0+0+0

0 = 0

next the case of x = 1, a=1

X = ((a+1)/(b+1) )- 1

0 = ((0+1)/(b+1)) - 1

1 = 1 /b+1

1 = b + 1

0 = b

a=xb+x+b

0=0*0+0+0

0=0

how about fractions

5 /2 = 2 1/2

X = ((a+1)/(b+1) )- 1

x = ((4+1) / (1+1)) - 1

x = (5/2) - 1

x = 3 /2

a=xb+x+b

4 = (3/2)*1 + 1 + 3/2

4 = (3/2) + 2/2 + 3/2

4 = (3+2+3)/2

4 = 8/2

4 =4

how about fractions

1 /2 = 1 /2

X = ((a+1)/(b+1) )- 1

x = ((0+1) / (1+1)) - 1

x = (1 /2 ) - 1

x = -1/2

a=xb+x+b

0 = ((-1/2) *1 + -1/2 + 1

0 = (-1/2 ) * 1 +( -1/2) + 1

0 = -1 + 1

0 = 0

seems to all work oddly enough.
