ZeroDivisionError is a Python exception that occurs when attempting to divide a number by 0. It is raised when the divisor is zero, even if the dividend is also zero.
Reason of Error
In mathematics, division by zero is undefined. Therefore, Python raises this error when attempting to divide by zero. The ZeroDivisionError is related to other exceptions such as TypeError, ValueError, and NameError.
a = 5
b = 0
print(a/b) # ZeroDivisionError
Solution to Solve Issue
To solve this issue, you should ensure that the divisor is not equal to zero before performing a division operation. Additionally, you can use try-except block to catch the error and display a custom message.
print("Division by zero is not allowed.")
