Math Help - Divisibility

1. Divisibility

The Division Algorithm says that $m=nq+r$, where $0\leq r < n, n \geq 2$.

I understand that when $r=0$, $m$ is a multiple of n, or $m$ is divisible by n.

Technically, we say when $m=0$ and $r=0, n|0$.

Now, my question is this: When we divide $0$ by $n$, we really have nothing to divide, but why $n|o$? Could anyone explain?
