Solve for m when 4m - 1 = 4m.

Quit trying to get me to divide by zero!

Solve for m when 4m - 1 = 4m.

The solution is trivial:

Let m = a, and plug it into the OP. Tongue

You can divide by zero no problem...unless it's 0/0.

RE: Fun with Math

Actually you can divide by zero only if it's 0/0 = anything.
Otherwise you can't.
