What was the method for modifying an equation to avoid dividing by zero?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think it involved adding 1 somewhere, then removing the error that creates later.

For example,

a / b = c

It is possible that one of the values placed in the b variable could be 0. How would the equation be modified so that dividing by zero wouldn't occur?
