Problem- 0/0 = ?????

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

This... (the one above)
It's NOT true that "anything over itself" is 1. The "anything" can't be zero.
"infinate" is not a word, but infinite is.
