- Good question! Note that 0/0 is the answer to the question “what number times 0 is 0?” Any number times 0 is always 0, so 0/0 can be anything! For this reason, 0/0 is called indeterminate.

If you take calculus later on, you will encounter 0/0 frequently when solving limit problems. This means that the result is inconclusive, so more work is required to calculate the value of the limit or determine that the limit doesn’t exist.
