Why Can’t We Divide by Zero?

I’ve often wondered why this rule of mathematics has withstood the test of time: don’t divide by zero.

In the world of math, many strange results are possible when we change the rules. But there’s one rule that most of us have been warned not to break: don’t divide by zero. How can the simple combination of an everyday number and a basic operation cause such problems?
