I have run into some situations where I need to scale a number by an infinitesimal amount and would like to know the correct way of defining this.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The best I have come up with is [(∞ - 1)/∞] but I fear that this notation may cause computational problems. Is there a better way to define a number that is infinitesimally less than 1?
