1 / infinity = ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is there anything that we can reduce this to?

(i doubt there is, but you never know)

well, it's REALLY close to 0

for all practical purposes 1 / infinity = 0

================

just thought of something!

ok, start with

1 / infinity = x

1 = x * infinity

~~~~~ analyze this ^^

x must be a REALLY small number to get infinity back down to 1

i.e. x = .0000000000000000000001

aka an infinite number of 0's and then a 1???

or an infinite number of 0's and then a 2?

or an infinite number of 0's and then a --

3?

47?

31415926535897932?

infinity? (hah .00000000000000000infinitity)

==================

i suppose you can't really get anywhere when dealing with these "infinities"

im stuck
