## Meanderings

Anything goes, but keep it seemly...

### Meanderings

Knowing less then others about nothing,
but
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)

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

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

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

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.

Some do, some teach, the rest look it up.
