Is any number divided by zero equal to zero?

No. Any number TIMES zero is zero. Any number DIVIDED by zero is infinity You can show this easily. Take any number - say 100. Divide it by 10 and the answer is 10. Now make the number that you divide into the 100 smaller - say, 5. The answer is now larger - 20 Carry on making the number that you divide into 100 smaller and smaller like this: 100 divided by 1 is 100 100 divided by 0.1 is 1000 100 divided by 0.01 is 10,000 100 divided by 0.001 is 100,000 So as the number you divide into 100 gets smaller the answer gets larger and larger. So when the number you divide becomes zero, then the answer must become infinity.
