Division by zero: What’s happen if you do it on mechanical calculator?

The normal process of division is performed by simple sequential substation. So dividing 6 by 2 is:

  1. 6 – 2 = 4
  2. 4 – 2 = 2
  3. 2 – 2 = 0

And the answer is 3.

But when you divide by zero:

  1. 6 – 0 = 6
  2. 6 – 0 = 6

So the answer will be infinity loop.
