The ratio of blue pills to white pills is infinite. The ration of white pills to blue pills is zero.

I recommend taking a blue pill.

The ratio of blue pills to white pills is undefined, as you cannot divide by zero. The Limit as x->0 of 4/x is infinite.

There is no ratio as you must have 2 positive values to compare.

One math class I had had a sign on the chalkboard that said "Thank you for not dividing by zero"
