The top is 1 and the bottom should be (4)(4) - 16 which is 0. So, is the answer 1?

Thank you

Well if the bottom is (4)(4)-16

then its undefined.

1/0 is undefined.

Anything with a 0 on the bottom is considered undefined and you can't solve it.

whenever there is a 0 on the bottom that means the solution is undefined

however, if the 0 is on top, then the solution is 0 =]
