Answer:

#0/(-2) = 0#

Explanation:

For any real number #a!=0# we have #0/a = 0#. It's having #0# in the denominator that gives us problems.
#a/0# is undefined.

One way of arriving at the conclusion above is looking at how we add rational numbers with the same denominator:

#0 = 1-1 = (-2)/(-2) - (-2)/(-2) = (-2-(-2))/(-2)=0/(-2)#
