Hi

In a scenario where there is a divison
and the divisor is zero
i shd get a result directly as zero
ex
a = 1
b = 0
c = a/b
in above case the error will be divisor zero
so i shd get output directly as '0'

help me

I'm not sure if I understood your question, but to avoid the divide by zero error you should do something like this:

a = 1
b = 0

if b=0 then
   c = 0
else
   c = a/b
end if

Please note that the notation used could differ depending on the language, so if for example you want to write this in C or Java, you should write:

a = 1;
b = 0;

if (b==0) {
   c = 0;
}
else {
   c = a/b;
}

Hope it helps.
