    1/0=1
    1 divided by 0, is 1 divided by nothing.
    1 times nothing is nothing 1 time, which is nothing.
    1 divided by nothing is 1, because 1 is not divided by anything.
    Or am I missing something?

    Any number divides by 0 = undefined. Division by zero is not possible.

    Sample: 222 ÷ 0 = undefined.

    Any number divided by 1 = the number itself.

    Sample: 222 ÷ 1 = 222
