The 0 is symbolic (Arabic origin I believe), it represents nothing. So you can say this is "illegal" in the sense that you haven't any quantity to divide 1 by. Or you can think of the smallest number, what is 1/that? It's big. Zero isn't the smallest number, but it's a good approximation.

It's not tricky at all. The result is undefined (it could be +infinity or -infinity), since you have failed to specify from which side of zero you're taking the limit. And if you don't know what that means, then you need to finish your first year calculus course.

Mathematically your question has no answer that makes sense although zero is a concept that is often used in maths

In a practical sense

If I take a pie and divided it by nothing, then in practical effect I am doing noting to it so it remains a whole pie.
