One over zero, It can be done!

Try this in a calculator that can get it done:


(0/1) / (1/0) = 0

I got that in mine!

Math Focus: Dynamical systems, analytic function theory, numerics
This is related to 2 very well known theorems.

1. If $\frac{1}{0}$ is well defined, then $\frac{\frac{0}{1}}{\frac{1}{0}} = 0$.

2. If $\frac{1}{\text{jar jar binks}}$ is well defined, then $\frac{\frac{0}{1}}{\frac{1}{\text{jar jar binks}}} = \text{jar jar binks}$.
