because think about it, if you have nothing (0) then how could you divide nothing by nothing?
By the rules of mathematics, you cannot divide anything by 0, sothere is no answer.
0 divided by 0 has no solution; It is undefined. Because any number divided by 0 is undefined, it applies to 0 divided by 0 as well.
Maybe a little more elegant/esoteric answer:. They are not defined because they cannot be pinned down to a single number due to these two questions that cannot be successfully answered:. 1) how many zeroes (denominator) are in zero (numerator)? (could be 1, but doesn't have to be and logically cou…ld be anything but infinity; infinite zeroes would eventually seem to render to or strive to approach finiteness -- in this case a quantity no matter how small, which violates the nature or idea of what zero is -- absolutely no quantity whatsoever). 2) how many infinities (denominator) are in infinity (numerator)? (could be 1, but doesn't have to be and logically could be anything but zero; zero infinities would eventually seem to render to or strive to approach finiteness -- in this case something countable no matter how large, which violates the nature or idea of what infinity is -- absolute unlimited quantity or all quantity possible). The mind naturally wants to go with 1, because the form x/x normally is guaranteed to result only in being equal to 1, except in those two cases.. In effect, they can symbolically equal 1 to satisfy the x/x=1 equation, but keep in mind that 0 and infinity are both very peculiar and don't fit into a 'box' or onto a number line. Zero represents literally _no quantity_ whatsoever (it actually utterly disappears from any number line) and infinity represents all possible quantity (and of course is forever unreachable on any number line).

It is undefined. You cannot divide by 0. You could also say it is infinity. Not the mathematical textbook answer, but think about it. You could have 100 x 0 and you get 0. You could have 99999999 x 0 and you still get 0. No matter how large of a number you use, you are going to still get 0.
YOU CAN NOT DIVIDE BY 0!!! If you divide by 0, the answer is undefined . You cannot divide a piece of paper into 0 parts. Good luck in math!
Division tells you how many times you need to subtract the divisor from the dividend to get 0 - the division is " dividend divided by divisor " and is written mathematically as: dividend Ã· divisor . The division can also be expressed as " divisor divided into dividend " which is written …like a bus shelter: ...........----------- divisor | dividend . In 8 divided by 0, 8 is the dividend and 0 is the divisor, but no matter how many times you subtract 0 from 8, you will never get to 0. 8 Ã· 0 has no answer (can be thought of as impossible, though it is often thought of as having the answer infinite). In 0 divided by 8, 0 is the dividend and 8 is the divisor, but as the dividend is already 0, you do not need to subtract the divisor at all. 8 Ã· 0 = 0. The difference is one has no answer/is impossible/is infinite and the other is 0. (MORE)
The answer to this question is actually quiet simple. Consider the case of a/b. This can be re-written as r*b = a. So, for 0/0, we must find a number such that r * 0 = 0. But what is r then? The answer is 'any number' - so you might think we can just say that 0/0 = infinity. However (!), in…finity is not a number - it is a concept. (For proof of this, remember that Infinity = Infinity + 1 = Infinity + 2 - so, if infinity was a number, we could cancel by Infinity here to get 1 = 2 = 3... and so on. Since this is blatantly obvious, this proves that Infinity is not a number.) Therefore, the answer to 0/0 is... undefined - there simply isn't an answer in numbers . In concepts , the answer is infinity. (MORE)
Can A be evenly divided by B ? Let's re-phrase the question: Does there exist an integer n , such that Bn = A ? Can 0 be evenly divided by 4? Does there exist an integer n , such that 4 n = 0?
There is no answer to that question as it is a mathematical impossibility to divide anything by zero. So you cannot divide anything by zero. You cannot say how many nothings are in something. its actually 0 The 1st answer is correct and the 2nd answer is wrong. The actual answer is undefined…. We cannot put 5 into 0 groups as it is impossible. Thus,the answer is undefined and not 0.(MathsGenius30) (MORE)
One cannot divide by zero, even if the numerator is zero. The limit, however, of a function which as it aproache an x value for which itequals 0/0 can be found using calculus and L'Hopital's rule.
In general, when you divide a number by zero the answer is alwaysgoing to be zero because yo mamma fat
The answer of a division problem can be proved by using multiplication (the inverse operation). For example, 8 divided by 4 is 2, because 2 times 4 is 8. Notice how the order of the numbers is reversed. When you divide by zero, you have a problem. First consider the answer to the problem 8 divided b…y 0. It would be the number that works in ? times 0 is 8. But anything times 0 is 0, not 8, so this problem has no answer. Now consider 0 divided by 0. The answer to this problem is the number that works in ? times 0 is 0. Every number is an answer! You can't pick or "define" the number that is the one answer to this problem, so it is said that the problem 0 divided by 0 is "undefined" .. not sure why its returning as undefined (guessing on a calculator) but you CAN'T divide by zero, the world will end NSFW image http://media.photobucket.com/image/divide%20by%20zero/surilaminInspirationaldividebyzero.jpg (MORE)
Undefined!Because any numeral diveded by 'zero ' is infinity , and any numeral multiplied by zero is 0.
Seriously? nothing happens OF COURSE, your dividing by nothing...... No ur wrong, ur paper catches on fire :3 Well, it matters on what the number is. Dividing 0 by 0 is 0, because dividing a number by itself is one, but since this number is negative to one, it cannot be. Sorry i made a hole… in the universe. (MORE)
Short answer: because the entire number system would fall to pieces. Explanation: Remember that if you divide by a number: x/y=z then you must be able to multiply the divisor across: x=z*y If you divide by 0 then it would be: x/0=z and multiply the 0 to the other side: x=z*0 anything time 0 = 0 so:… x=0 but what if you do 2=0? Then you have: 2/0=z 2=z*0 2=0 Obviously 2 cannot actually be equal to 0 so you can't do that. As for dividing 0/0 the reason is because anything divided by itself must equal 1: x/x=1 but if we could divide by zero then it would result in zero, so 0/0=1 AND 0/0=0 since it can't be both you can't do that.

0 divided by 0 is undefined. You just cannot divide by zero. Theprevious answer was wrong.
Lets say you have 0 pieces of pie and you divide it among you and four of your friends. How much would each person get? This would be 0 pieces since there isn't any pie. If you have 5 pieces of pie but no one to divide it to, you cant divide it.
15-0 is either the team's record (fifteen wins and no losses) or a pitcher's record (how many games they pitched in which they won versus in which they lost).
Tell them that you cannot divide any number by zero. Zero is a number, therefore you cannot divide 0 by 0.
Division by zero is not a permitted mathematical operation, so the question has no meaning.
Division by zero is undefined. There can never be an answer. Think about it this way, 3/1=3 because 1x3=3. Zero times any number is zero, so it cannot be used to divide. So since it cannot be used, the answer is 0. Because it is non-existent.
14/0 is 0. Good job. The reason its not one of those unsolvable answers is b/c its not 0/14. Its zero. Use a calculator.(
I just read my Math book. When you divided a number by 0, it means its meaningless nor unknown. Even you cannot answer it. I think ALL quotients should be lower than the divisor. 0 divided by 0 is 1. But it is wrong. At the start, you cannot even answer. Except for the ones who say it is infinite o…r zero. (MORE)
5 divided by 0 is undefined, meaning that there isn't really an answer, however for practical purposes it is zero
You cannot divide any number by zero. There is a reason you were not taught "division by zero" tables in school.
Good question. Plot it out on a line and it has to be 7.5 Often confused with the mid-point between 1 and 15, which is 6.5.
The answer is 0 Every time that divide or multiply 0, the answer is still 0
You can't divide by zero!!!!!!!!! That is exactly right. Dividing is putting a number into another as many times as you can, for example, 12 goes into 144 12 times. So, it follows logically that if you try putting nothing into something, your answer will be nothing! yes anything that multiply & d…ivide by 0 is 0 (MORE)
0 divided by any number is 0. This result is explained by the fact that no number, even 0, can go into 0. In the example below 9 cannot go into 0 at all, resulting in the 0 answer. Example: 0 / 9 = 0
It is an operation that is not defined in mathematics. Consider, for example, a property of division: If a/b = c, then bc = a. For example because 12/3 = 4, 3(4) = 12. When we consider dividing by zero, we reach a problem. The following multiplication statement is true: 5 * 0 = 0 So it s…eems that: 0/0 = 5. Also: 6 * 0 = 0 0/0 = 6. Thus, division by zero does not have this property of association with multiplication. Intuitively this is because division is the question of how many as are in b. How many zeros are in 5? That doesn't really make any sense. So, in mathematics we generally do not define division by zero for all of these concerns. (MORE)
It's exactly 15 units away from zero. If you consider 15 to be close, then it's close.
The answer is 0 as long as the number you're dividing by is a non-zero number.
Pretty much anything. If you want it to come out evenly, try 1,3,5 or 15.
It isn't. Zero is infinitely small, and dividing by zero is therefore the equivalent of multiplying by infinity. It is mathematically meaningless to ask what is zero multiplied by infinity. For that same reason, you cannot divide any number by zero. The answer will be undefined.
-14, -13, -12, -11, -10, -9, -8, -7, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, and -1 .
Dividing is just another way of saying how many times does something add to itself to give you something else. When you divide by zero you are saying how many times can you add nothing to get something. The answer is even if you added an infinite nothings together you would still never get something…. So the rule is dividing by zero is undefined in that you can't do it. (MORE)
An error; you cannot divide by 0. Though sometimes it may be considered as infinity (â).
When you divide zero by anything or multiple anything by zero, the answer will always be zero.
it is infinite because its not possible to divide by 0 .. people think it is 0 but the real answer is infinite
No Its 0 Nope, you can't divide 0 by anything because you can't divide"nothing" by something. You'd still end up with nothing. Likedividing an apple that you don't have - you can't divide it as youdon't have an apple. If that makes sense..?
No, zero divided by anything is considered 'undefined' which meansthere is no answer. However, the answer would be zero, not 0.1
the answer is undefined because -2 cant go into 0 also 0 is notright and something is divided by zero is undefind like -2/0 isundefined if its an option The answer is infinity.
If you owe money to four people, but you today have no money, then $0 divided between 4 people means each of them gets $0
Any number cannot be divided by 0. thats like saying 10 dollars is given to 0 people. Makes absolutely no sense
3*0 = 0 Dividing both sides by 3 gives 0 = 0/3 and therefore 0/3 is defined and is equal to 0. However, there is no number, k, such that k*0 = 3 and so division by 0 is not defined. If there were such a number k, then you could divide both sides by k to give 0 = 3/k. But there is no such k.
The operation, division, is not symmetric. There is a number, x, such that x*3 = 0. In fact x is also 0. But there is no number, y, such that y*0 = 3.
Division can be thought of as the opposite of multiplication: 0 Ã· 3 is the same as saying "what number when multiplied by 3 results in 0"; answer: 0. 3 Ã· 0 is the same as saying "what number when multiplied by 0 results in 3"; no number when multiplied by 0 results in 3 (as 0 times anyth…ing is 0), thus it can't be done. . Alternatively, division tells you how many times you need to, or can, subtract the divisor from the dividend to get to zero. If you start with a dividend of zero and a non-zero divisor, you don't need to, nor can you, subtract the divisor to get to zero. If you start with a non-zero dividend, and a zero divisor, no matter how many times you subtract the divisor you will never get to zero - the dividend stays the same. With a zero dividend and a zero divisor, you have reached zero when you start, BUT you can subtract the divisor and the dividend will then become (stay) zero; thus zero divided by zero is any number you want - in calculus there are rules which specify the value to use in different circumstances.

0 Ã· 0 is NOT infinity; it is indeterminant. 0 Ã· 0 is any and every value; it is a basis of calculus: Consider a curve y = some function of x (ie y = f(x), eg y = xÂ²) Draw a chord on that curve from some value of x to another value ofx a little way to its right, ie draw the chord between …the two yvalues at x and x+h where h is a small value. The slope of this chord is given by change_in_y/change_in_x =(f(x+h)-f(x))/((x+h)-x) = (f(x+h)-f(x))/h As h gets smaller and smaller, the chord tends towards the tangentof the curve at that x value and so the slope of the chord tends towards the slope of thetangent at that x value As h tends towards 0, the value of the slope tends towards somevalue which is different for different values of x. For y=xÂ² atx=0, the tangent has a slope of 0, but at x=1 the tangent has aslope of 2. At the limit when h=0, the slope of the chord is the slope of thetangent, but when h=0, the slope is (f(x+0)-f(x))/0 = (f(x)-f(x))/0= 0/0 Thus 0/0 is both 0 and 2 when considering the slopes of tangents toy=xÂ² at x=0 and x=1.
