Imagine, if you decide to give something that you can separate easily. Got that? Now let's say that it can be separated easily, where each person can get one portion. This makes sense when you are dealing with whole persons right. But it does not make sense when there are zero persons. This is what Math teachers will call undefined. Take for example:

• if it is for two people, you divide that in half,
• if one person, you give the whole thing,
• so if for zero people, what do you do?

Well you can't give any portion, if you don't know what portion to give by dividing by zero and we know it can't be the whole thing or a portion of it. So they (the Math people of long ago) determined to agree this is undefined (not defined).
So, if anyone asks, what do you get when you divide by zero, just say the Math people said it is undefined or not defined. They may most likely say back, that is good or I could never do it either. That is when you can smile and laugh and breathe till they ask another question that stumps you.

Have a great Math day!!!

PS: disregard my comment above. I should have taken my time but thought there would have been an edit button after I clicked add comment. Did revise, herein, so here we go again as a Mentor note to myself and others (live a little and learn a little, hope I live a lot and learn a lot to share!). Learning, Math and Life should be fun and personal because it makes it easier to remember in a personal universe!
