As an engineering student we have math and engineering professors so my apologies for not being more specific. I also shared with a statistics and physics professor

Division: numerator / divisor = some result You: (numerator)(divisor1) = some result What do you write when when the divisor = 0? I don't care about the result. Everyone here already knows what the result is when dividing by zero. Last fiddled with by retina on 20200623 at 14:30

I’ve already mentioned some of it. That I can’t call it division but rather a new thought or theory about it. Another one told me a lot of great things about it including that it contradicts everything in the math department. I wasn’t sure about what he meant so I began to dig deeper and it lead me down this road of asking questions about our current division and not stopping until I either understood and couldn’t provide a solution or figuring out how my theory could be a solution.

If it contradicts everything in the math department, then either your idea is flawed, or all of known math is wrong.

1/2 is how many times can we cut things of size 2 from a thing of size 1. 6.4 / 1.7 is how many times can we cut things of size 1.7 from a thing of size 6.4. 1/0 is how many times can we cut things of size 0 from a thing of size 1.

Offtopic, somewhat.
Seeing all the fractions in the pizza video reminded me of my father. He worked over 25 years in a road construction machine factory. He could look at a bolt head or a nut and say what size it was. He would get 8th's and 16th's right every time. He was also a parttime carpenter. He could glance at a tapemeasure and do the same thing. He struggled with millimeters when it became common much later in his life.
