I was wondering if someone might be able to clarify the concept of "zero content" to me. I have the textbook definition:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Given a set Z, for any epsilon > 0, there are a finite # of rectangles such that 1) their union is a subset of Z and 2) their summed areas is less than epsilon.

But this seems very abstract to me...is there a more tangible way of explaining what zero content is?

Cheers,

W. =)
