# Number closest to 0

I want to see if there are any good mathematitions out there. This battle is to create the number closest to zero (or formula that creates the number closest to zero).

rules:

infinity is allowed as part of the formula. you can use as many infinities as you please
don’t multiply by a decimal just to make the number closer to zero.
0 cannot be used
two fraction limit (fractional indicies count).
No identical indices
no indices on indices
any format. You can use a programming to create the formula only one loop if you do though
Be prepared to explain if someone doesn’t quite get it.

here’s my example;

yeah, i was wrong

so i was right? YAY!!

negative numbers don’t have roots. Any number times itself will be a positive number

That’s not true.

well heres my official entry:

see this two? Its a number and its MIGHTY close to that 0!

Nice.

lmao that’s awesome

iilay is right there is an imaginary number i = root -1

actually infinity is the closest number to zero.

numbers exist as an arbituary scale. They have no meaning on their own. When they forget this students panic when x = 36 and y = something like a third.
