Dividing infinity by infinity 
20090624 

From Justin: Hello again, I just had one other question nagging question about infinity. I read this article on "Types of Infinity" on Paul Hawkins calculus website and he stated that one infinity cannot be divided by another or that the answer is inderterminate because fundamentally infinity comes in different sizes with respect to infinite sets and that this applies also to calculus. And so I was wondering (if this is true) is this why when you divide infinity by infinity (in the extended real number system) the answer is indeterminate since fundamentally one inifnity is larger than another like in infinite sets or is there another reason? Thanks sooo much for answering my question again! I greatly appreciate it!
All the Best,
