When BillyB(x, y) is defined, how can BillyB(x, y) = z be computed? Are there some pairs x and y for which BillyB(x, y) = x/y or BillyB(x, y+1) = x/y?
It is a function but I was told by a math professor that I have the utmost respect for to call it a new thought on division so I stuck with that until I realized the formula that it created. You can use it to graph coordinates as well.
