# Divided - Netflix

**Divided** is a game show in which three strangers must come to a
consensus and agree on everything, including the correct answer to a
question. The more the players debate, disagree or dig in their heels,
the less prize money becomes available to them. In the end, the prize
money is divided into three unequal amounts and they have to agree on
who gets what share, but the longer they take, the less they make as the
clock – and the money amounts - tick down. Less talk and more
decision–making equals more cash, but expect psych–outs and ethical
dilemmas within the show's unique framework.

## Divided - Division by zero - Netflix

In mathematics, division by zero is division where the divisor (denominator) is zero. Such a division can be formally expressed as a/0 where a is the dividend (numerator). In ordinary arithmetic, the expression has no meaning, as there is no number which, multiplied by 0, gives a (assuming a≠0), and so division by zero is undefined. Since any number multiplied by zero is zero, the expression 0/0 is also undefined; when it is the form of a limit, it is an indeterminate form. Historically, one of the earliest recorded references to the mathematical impossibility of assigning a value to a/0 is contained in George Berkeley's criticism of infinitesimal calculus in 1734 in The Analyst (“ghosts of departed quantities”). There are mathematical structures in which a/0 is defined for some a such as in the Riemann sphere and the projectively extended real line; however, such structures cannot satisfy every ordinary rule of arithmetic (the field axioms). In computing, a program error may result from an attempt to divide by zero. Depending on the programming environment and the type of number (e.g. floating point, integer) being divided by zero, it may generate positive or negative infinity by the IEEE 754 floating point standard, generate an exception, generate an error message, cause the program to terminate, result in a special not-a-number value, a freeze via infinite loop, or a crash.

## Divided - Division as the inverse of multiplication - Netflix

But any number multiplied by 0 is 0 and so there is no number that solves the equation. The expression

since 2 is the value for which the unknown quantity in

x × 0 = 0. {\displaystyle x\times 0=0.}

6 0 = x {\displaystyle {\frac {6}{0}}=\,x}
