This has kept me up pacing the Floors many nights now, but what is 0/0?
It's either, 0/0 = 1, because anything over itself is 1 0/0 = no solution because you cannot divide by zero Or, 0/0 = infinate, because say you have an empty jar of m&m's, how many other jars could you fill with the same amount? Crazy stuff :D Blackhawk

It's NOT true that "anything over itself" is 1. The "anything" can't be zero.
