Do you have any web links to support this?

The real world also has these pixels called atoms, assuming atoms are smallest atomic entity in the universe, I don�t know because I don�t know physics. So because of the finite-ness of the scale of minuteness of the universe limited by atoms the arrow will always hit its target.

Actually the daddy of all operations is good old addition. The only maths that computers are capable of doing aside from logical operations. Multiplication is an extension of addition as 2*10 is simply 2 added to itself 10 times. The inverse of addition is subtraction which I sincerely hope I need not explain. Hence division is the extension of subtraction as 10/2 we simply count the number of times we take 2 from 10 before the remainder is 0 or less than 2 as for example in the operation 11/2 you can subtract 2 from 11 a total of 5 times before the result is 1, hence the result is 5 remainder 1. If we take 10 oranges and divide them by 0 the result is 0 subtractions with a remainder of 10 oranges. It's common sense you don't need to have a degree in imaginary numbers to understand the simplicity of it all.
