The top is 1 and the bottom should be (4)(4)  16 which is 0. So, is the answer 1?
Thank you 
Chopsticks
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. 
Sadie
Thank you so much!

Bella
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 =]
