Answer:

Undefined.

Explanation:

Anything divided by #0# is considered to be "undefined". So, if we take #1/0,2/0,3/0,...# it doesn't matter, they will all be undefined.

However, there is a special case that holds with #0/0#, and it is indeterminable instead.

That's because, #0/0# will equal any number, as any number multiplied by #0# will equal out to be #0#.

In summary, every number except #0# will result in being undefined if they are divided by #0#.
