seven divided by ones Okay well let's assume this question

isn't asking us about a type of surgical procedure because

i'm not sure a triple bypass is gonna do the

trick here Instead we've got four options plus minus times

were divided by before we start plugging stuff in willy

nilly Let's ask ourselves what we're really trying to find

here What does it mean when something's undefined Well the

most common i'm defined thing you're going to have on

a test like fish is once something's divided by zero

You can't really divide something by zero no matter how

hard you try which is what makes an expression undefined

in first place In that case we can set up

a little equation one blank one equal zero with the

blank being the operation we're looking for so it should

be pretty obvious that one minus one is zero and

when we take seven divided by zero we're undefined which

is what we wanted So our answer is minus there 00:01:12.806 --> [endTime] that wasn't nearly painful is a triple bypass Oh
