I know it's a minor point, but the part in red is not actually correct. Division by zero is undefined (both theoretically and practically speaking). Infinity is a concept, not a number, and therefore cannot be the result of a mathematical operation on the real numbers.

Anyway, that doesn't take away from the point of your post, which is that Khaled decided to give nonsensical results for division-by-zero calculations instead of having to deal with throwing/handling an error.
