When $0$ is divided by any signed number, the quotient will be zero.
RECALL: $8 \div 2 = 4$ because $4 \times 2 = 8$ Thus, $0 \div 4 = 0$ since $0 \times 4 = 0$ When zero is divided by any signed number such as $8$the quotient is zero. This is because there is for any real number $a$, $0 \div a = 0$ because $0 \times a = 0$
