So, if I write a check for $120.45 and I write the amount as:
.
one hundred twenty and........45/00
.
Is the check valid, since I expressed it as a division by zero, which is mathematically meaningless?

You divided by double zero, which is allowed.

It's a convention to write it that way, not a mathematical equation.
Lim(a/x,x-->0) = inf
Lim(a/x,x-->00) = every conceivable number.
You're rich!!
Ride or Die
Write yourself a check.
Ride or Die
45/00 = 4.5 cents, old-school notation
The bigger question is you wrote a check?
What's a "check"?
Ten tenths.
I have always written mine as xx/100.
Countries I've ridden in: US, Canada, Ireland, UK, Germany, Netherlands, France, China, Singapore, Malaysia
States I've ridden in: Illinois, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, California, Nevada, Missouri, Colorado
FWIW - once the check gets to the bank it's processed by electronic equipment anyway. Any human being who hppens to look at it will not care about the legal niceties - they are a "production unit" and are under the *** to get the work out the door.
Any Canadian could tell you it's not the zeros that are the problem. It's invalid since you're supposed to spell it "cheque"
