This is a question that no one probably knows. What is 0 divided by 0? Just a extra, I think it's 0, because when 0 is put into 0 groups there is 0 in each group. But that might be wrong, because if scientists and mathematicians were solving it that way, they wouldn't be asking what 0 divided by 0 is. Does anyone know?

What is \(\frac{0}{0}\)?

 

Mathematicians are not actually debating the answer to this. It is well-known that it is undefined. 0/0 always contradicts itself--no matter what angle you try to get its value from.

 

Let's see what happens if both the numerator and denominator both try o get equally close to 0

 

Tries Result  
\(\frac{0.1}{0.1}\) \(1\)  
\(\frac{0.01}{0.01}\) \(1\)  
\(\frac{0.0001}{0.0001}\) \(1\)    
\(\frac{1*10^{-90}}{1*10^{-90}}\) \(1\)  

 

What happens if we try to make the denominator closer to zero while remaining the numerator as 0.

 

Try Result  
\(\frac{0}{1}\) \(0\)  
\(\frac{0}{0.1}\) \(0\)  
\(\frac{0}{0.000001}\) \(0\)  
\(\frac{0}{0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001}\) \(0\)  
\(\frac{0}{1*10^{-10000000}}\) \(0\)  
     

 

Both of these suggest that 0 tends toward 2 different values, which is a contradiction. Thus, 0/0 is undefined.

I think it's zero the\ats the only thing that makes sense but here's a couple of vids that explain it

The first video explains why it is NOT 1 and NOT 0

But the video is GOOD so thank you Owlface  for giving the address.    laugh

 

The second video is probably goopd too but I have not watched it :)

the answer is 0, if you have 0 friends and you split 0 cookies among those friends each friend gets 0 cookies.

The simple answer is that \(0/0 \) is undefined.
