How do I edit this formula so it will still return a 0 if F2 = 0 as well as G2?

=IF(G2=0," ",(G2/F2))
0

For this case

=if(f2=0,0,g2/f2)

should be sufficient

Yes, if G2 was 0, then the formula G2/F2 would yield 0 because 0 divided by any number equals 0.  So as was already mentioned by ssaqibh, all you really need is:
=IF(F2=0,0,G2/F2)
0

If you just want to see zero instead #div/0!, you may use, =IFERROR(G2/F2,0)
But this will hide other errors too.
