 1/infinity = 0It's not extremely close, it's infinitely close.There is nothing more than infinity.As I said, you missed some very important classes in school.P.S. Remind everybody, you are ignoring whom?

 Wrong!If 1/infinity = 0 then 1 = 0 * infinity which is wrong, as any grade school student will tell you that 0 * any number (0 * n ) = 0.  Therefore 1/infinity can not equal zero.  It can come infinitly close, but it will never BE 0.

 Infinity is not any number.0*infinity is not 0.6th grade math.Theory of limits.Go and study.

 Heh... or...Infinity = undefinedNull = undefined1/Infinity = undefined?1/Infinity = Null?

 Not really.Infinity is not undefined.0* infinity depends on the way infinity was received.If infinity came from 5/0 then 0*infinity = 5If infinity came from 1/0 then 0*infinity = 1If infinity came from 5/0/0 then 0*infinity = infinityOf course, if you don't know which way infinity was built, it becomes NULL.Fortunately, there is no way to store infinity in computers, so it's not a problem.

 And again you are wrong.  n/0 = undefined, not infinity.  But then again, I'm sorry, you are never wrong, are you?

 Lynn, you're so bad.You cannot even get how bad and low you are.Don't tell anybody that n/0 = undefined, not infinity.Because it's a shame to be so ignorant as you are.For those who did not achieve in school and believes is "extremely close" things:http://archimedes.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/cgi-bin/archim/dict/hw?lemma=ACHILLES&step=entry&id=d006Distance between Achilles and the tortoise will be extremely small, but never zero.Right?

 No, Achilles will over take the tortoise.  But even then, you will never be wrong, right?

 Lynn, believe me, there is a whole world of math beyond the level of primary school arithmetics.You just don't know about it, but it's there.
