Showiing a zero percentage

I have three cells,  B3, B4, and B5.  They are formatted as number.  B5 formula is like this =sum(B3:B4)
Since B3 and B4 both contain a zero B5 number is zero as well.

Cells B10 and B11 are formatted as percentages.  B10 formula is this: =sum(B3/B5) and B11 formula is this: =sum(B4/B5)

Since B3 and B4 have 0s in them B10 and B11 give me a div/0 error.

How do I get B10 and B11 to display a 0%

In mathematics, division by zero is undefined, so to display 0% is incorrect.
