According to these, division by infinity equals exactly zero! No need for calculus limits, which only can say it approaches zero when tending towards infinity.

My motivation is resolving the argument between continuous and discrete/quantum notions.

Continuous says there is no smallest unit. So that would be 1 unit divided by infinity. And if that equals zero exactly, then it really doesn't exist, does it? So that would point to a smallest unit/quantum.

Your thoughts please.

Thanks,
