The most common answer is:

```
numerator = int(input(“Enter a numerator: “))
denominator = int(input(“Enter denominator: “))
If denominator is 0, this will result in a division-
by-zero error! Add in code to solve this issue:
try:
if numerator / denominator * denominator == numerator:
print “Divides evenly!”
except ZeroDivisionError:
print “Doesn’t divide evenly.”
```

To correctly handle division by zero and check for divisibility, we can modify your code to use a `try-except`

block properly and ensure the usage of standard ASCII quotation marks.

Additionally, the logic for checking divisibility can be simplified by using the modulo operator `%`

, which directly checks if the remainder of the division is zero.

Here’s the revised version of the code:

```
numerator = int(input("Enter a numerator: "))
denominator = int(input("Enter a denominator: "))
# Checking for division by zero and divisibility
try:
# Correct way to check for divisibility
if numerator % denominator == 0:
print("Divides evenly!")
else:
print("Doesn't divide evenly.")
except ZeroDivisionError:
print("Cannot divide by zero.")
```

This program will:

- Prompt the user to enter a numerator and a denominator.
- Use a
`try-except`

block to catch and handle division by zero errors. - Check if the numerator divides evenly by the denominator using the modulo operator
`%`

. - Print “Divides evenly!” if there’s no remainder.
- If the denominator is zero, it will catch the
`ZeroDivisionError`

and print “Cannot divide by zero.”
