Tried...but it just wouldn't work (since, in mathematics, division by zero is "undefined;" continuity (at least at this level) demands reciprocals, and since the multiplication of any number by zero produces zero, then the inverse computation can provide no reciprocal. "Zero" is a "number, in much the same sense as "black" is a "color." The primary function in math of zero is to act as a "place holder;" you'll notice that the first ten numbers in our system of math consist of "1," through "10;" or "one," through "ten," if you prefer. We could have employed something other than a "1" followed by a "0," to designate the number "ten;" (the Romans did this, but it proved to be pretty clumsy) but then we would have had to introduce another "place holder," in any case. Wouldn't we? Then we would have to go through the bother of providing a "proof" that this surrogate also produced no product -- other than itself, when applied to multiplication. Better to keep it simple.
