because 0 by anthing is zero, same number by same number is 1 and anything by zero is undefined. therefore 0/0 is undefined.

0/0 =0 you can use it in any equation and try

Since you can't assign a number to it in any logical way. Multiplication by zero is not an invertible operation. Division is the inverse operation of multiplying, so division by zero is not possible (even for 0/0).

What times zero equals zero... Umm... I don't know, maybe everything... Pretty solid proof right there...
