You appear to have missed the point completely. If you can't represent whatever is your equivalent of division-by-zero, just say so.

numerator / divisor = some result

(numerator)(divisor-1) = some result

What do you write when when the divisor = 0? I don't care about the result. Everyone here already knows what the result is when dividing by zero.
