    n^2=n*n so (n*n)/n=n

    Dont read :\[n\mid n^2\]as division. By definition, \[a\mid b \iff b=ak ,k\in \mathbb{Z}\]there is no division taking place. By this definition, 0 does divide 0^2 since 0^2=0*0

    I've always heard, zero cannot divide anything.

    You are thinking of fractions. Notice the definition doesnt contain anything about fractions.

    So, in fact, we do have fractions in the definition.

    hmmm, i still wouldnt say there are fractions. This is generally the way they talk about division in Rings, where only multiplication and addition are defined. But yes, a cannot be zero. http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/xpage/divides.html

    \(a|b\) denotes \(b\) is divisible by \( a \)
