Subject: Re: Re: Zero divided by zero (indeterminate form).

That's a great reply... Thank you! But can you think of another way to express 0/0? I thought it would useful to explain it's status by expressing it as a combination of other expressions, ie. 1/0 x 0/1 (which of course is invalid). Can anyone think of another valid (and more accessible) way to express 0/0?
