# What is difference beetween 0/0 and n/0,where n =any real number but not 0

0/0=undetermined. n/0=infinitive, where n is any real number but not 0.

There is a slight difference. The equation 0/0 = x has more than one possible finite solution, which makes it indeterminate, but the equation 1/0 = x has no finite solution, which makes it "undefined", or "not well defined". Math software often denote it as "complex infinity"

There is no difference, since $$0 \in R$$. Everything divides $$0$$ is undetermined.
