Just exchanging components doesn't count. And by definition, one divided by zero is undefined.

Replace infinity with n and 0 with a. From the first one we have as n-> infinity a->0. 1/n=a so 1/a=n. In this case (equation is equivilent) as n->infinity a->0 so we have the second equation.

Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill just laughed at Jack as he sat there unconscious.

Jack should've known that Jill was a baddie . . .

Noting that infinity is not an algebraic quantity like zero is,
I'm wondering if this is a picture puzzle like this one and not a math puzzle?

I shouldn't be concerned. Puzzles with similarly goofy gimmicks get posted here all the time, and putting it in anything but the Math subforum would probably have given away the answer.

(And I'm hardly the one to talk, given that my solution to the "connect four towns with roads" problem was to make a "giant mile-wide road that covers the countryside.")

Right on both counts. :)

Nice puzzle Barcallica. ;)
