Why is division by zero undifined

Hi James,
One must be more careful here: The correct statement is that

the quotient of a real number divided by zero cannot equal a real
number.
(That's really obvious from the definition of division: a/b = c must mean
the same thing as a = bc. Note what happens when b = 0 and c is a real
number.) One important aspect of calculus is learning to deal with
division by zero. In other words, division by zero can be defined, and
that definition is part of the foundation of calculus.
