## Prealgebra (7th Edition)

In the fraction $\frac{36}{0}$, $36$ is the dividend and $0$ is the divisor. From this section we know that when 0 is the divisor of a division problem, the answer is undefined. For a real world example of this problem, if there are 36 hats given to 0 people, we cannot say how many hats there are per person. This the answer is undefined.
