Quick math terminology question?
Yeah, I know. I'd lose all my money on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Greater. Just answer the question ;)
A reference would be appreciated.
Here's the Question:
What's the technical term for a real number divided by zero? i.e., 5/0
Lol, And I wrote "Greater" instead of "Grader." I'm a little off today.

Dividing by zero is, indeed, "undefined", unless the real number in question is zero. 0/0 is "indeterminate".

it's not a term; but the number is undefined. This is not the only kind of number that is undefined.Source(s): my brain
