This video discusses the number zero in division. When dividing numbers, there are ways to check your math, like multiplying the two numbers. When you multiply zero with any other number, it still is zero. The video goes on to discuss indeterminate answers. If you were to divide a zero by a zero, your calculator would come up with an error message. But there are real results to these odd equations and they are indeterminate. The indeterminate doesn't really show up in everyday living, but in advance areas of mathematics, such as calculus, mathematicians see this all the time. They are able to deal with this in a particular way by giving meaning to the results.
