Compare your comments with the following:
a) 
Negative 3 is denoted by _3.
The underbar _ is part of the representation of
a negative number in the same sense that the decimal point is
part of the representation of onehalf when written in the
form 0.5, and the negative
sign _ must not be confused with the symbol used
to denote subtraction (i.e., ).

b) 
Division (%) by zero
yields infinity, denoted by the underbar alone.

c) 
Log of 2 to the base 1 is infinite,
and log of 0 to the base 3 is negative
infinity (__).

d) 
Since the relation 5<7 is true, and the result
of 5<7 is 1, it may be said that
true and false are represented by the ordinary
integers 1 and 0.
George Boole used this same convention, together with the
symbol + to represent the boolean function or.
We use the distinct representation +.
to avoid conflict with the analogous (but different) addition
(denoted by +).
