Subject: Re: Zero divided by zero (indeterminate form).
Explaining n/0 0/0 I'm doing a websearch, hoping to enforce my argument that Zero is itself is "indeterminate" not just division by zero. Still, a way of explaining the difficulties of division by zero, is found in this book: "The Art Of The Infinite" by Robert Kaplan and Ellen Kaplan pages 56-57 ISBN# 0-19-514743-X I believe that the idea centers on the multiplicative inverse of Zero.
