    In the natural numbers, integers and real division by zero does not have a defined value, because for every number n, the product N* 0 = 0, so that the 0 has no multiplicative inverse. In other mathematical bodies may exist divisors of zero, however, they appear when the zero is the dividend, not a divider.

    you could also think of it like this 0 multiplied by what number gives you 1 and the answer is none so there is nothing you can divide by zero that gives you 1

    I can not prove. It is given in algebra as a rule. To find the proof would mean hanging out in the science library of a state college and finding a good book or two.
