The term for division by 0 is "undefined".

It's not infinity (like some people would claim), and it's not 0. It's undefined.

And this works for ANYTHING divided by 0. Even 0/0 is undefined (and people will tell you that it's equal to 1 when it's not).

u might be thinking of undefined or empty set

dividing by zero is mathematically illegal, so it yeilds no answer
