How to work around error when trying to divide zero by zero?
The code works fine until I enter zero both for the dividend and the divisor. But if I do that I get the EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION error when it should return "Divisible"... Any thoughts on how to work around this?

I'm not sure what the video says, but 0/0 is actually not divisible. Instead, it is one of the only values in mathematics that is "indeterminate"
Since we are using a Remainder Operator and not an actual division, 0/4 for example, does not return an error. 4/0 does. It does not make any sense, of course.
