I'm finding the percent error in a S.R. problem and getting a really small number. How can I find the exact percentage? This is the result that needs to be simplified:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

6.7x10^(-16) / (1 + 6.7x10^(-16))

If I do an order of magnitude approximation, then the bottom becomes 1, but that will make the top zero since we are assuming 6.7x10^(-16) to be zero.

Any ideas on simplifying this?
