    I start by asking a question in math.
    The next person answer.
    Then asks another question.
    This is an easy one.

    0/0= any number

    0x0=0
    in 0/0, 0 is like a place holder as if we were using what is x for example

    if
    30x0=0 then 0/0=30

    so 0/0= any number that you decide to use in the equation

    0/0=impossible because the denominator is 0 you can try to solve this in a calculator it'll appear error on the screen

    Yeah, that's right, 0/0 is impossible, it's absolutely undefined.

    0/0= any # Throughly explained :) it is not impossible but indefinite. When you put it in a calculator you do not get a answer b/c you did not use anythng as a value so it is undefined. It should read in a calculator as "Result of function undefined" not giving the answer as 0. 0 is like a place holder for x you have to determine what x is.

    Well guys I will give you a word problem

    Three times the width of a certain rectangle exceeds twice its length by three inches, and four times its length is twelve more than its perimeter. Find the dimensions of the rectangle

    :salam2: Amirha this is what i got let me know if it's correct or not
    W=x L=y and perimeter=x+y+12
    3x=3(2y)+3 3x-6y=3 3x-6y=3 x=27
    4y=x+y+12 -x+3y=12 -2x+6y=24
    3x-6y=3
    3(27)-6y=3
    81-3=6y
    78=6y
    y=13
    now W=27 and L=13

    Here's what i got again x as width y as lenght and p as 2(x=y)=12
    3x=2y+3 3x-2y=3 3x-2y=3
    4y=2(x+y)+12 4y-2x-2y=12 -2x+2y=12
    3x-2y=3
    -2x+2y=12
    x=15
    now let's look for y
    3x-2y=3
    3(15)-2y=3
    45-3=2y
    42/2=y y=21
    now the widht is 15 and the lenght 21 which dosn't make sense after what i thought there might have some errors in the problem because if three times the widht exceeds twice the lenght only by 3 that implies the lenght is longer
    Anyway i'd like to have some hints if i'm not right and i really appreciate this
    May Allah forgives us our sins and reward us with jannah?Ameen
