Division by Zero Error

Usually, I can predict that a numerator is going to be 0, e.g. in 
1/(x^2). I just check the value of the numerator before doing the division.

In rare cases, I can't predict the value of the numerator. In those 
cases, I put a try control structure around the offending lines and some 
code to clean up after the "final" line.

Kind regards,
