There are programming languages that make various assumptions. Some tell you that 0/0 = 1 if it encountered in a program sequence. This is just an assumption of the code. It's not gospel. I think most of the time, if a program encounters 0/0, you will get either "NAN" (not a number) or a division error or something else catastrophic.
Consider red, blue, and yellow. Do you argue that a red ball is yellow because that ball is not blue? Consider the boundary line between Canada and the US: is it in Canada or the US or both?
Zero is said to be a neutral number, neither positive nor negative. A positive integer n is said to be prime if the only positive integers that go evenly into it are 1 and the number n itself. Well 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, ... all go evenly into zero so zero is the absolute worst candidate for being prime. 0/0 is not zero. 0/0 is indetermined. You really need to learn your definitions. Math is like a game where you can't play the game very well if you do not know the rules (definitions).
