Post error message for what I don't think is an error
I am trying to solve a 0-7 8x8 bonus puzzle. There is an L-shaped cage with a division operator and a 0 result. When I had to put two zeros and a two into the cells I got an error message. I thought this should be a correct solution.

Or maybe I'm mistaken and should have addressed this post to the solving strategies and tips forum.

Thanks for any feedback.

No, it's fine here, thanks for the report.

The cage clue turns red because you can't divide by zero, and because zero divided by zero is undefined.

Check out some of these search results: https://www.google.com/search?q=dividing+zero+by+zero
