# Is #1/oo = 0# ?

Ex:

Now you can these number are not 1 and are not even relatively close to 0, but if you divide by a relatively huge number you will get a extremely small number which will nowhere be 0, but close to it.

The precise mathematical definition takes a bit of work to understand:

We do use the notation

The phrase "x approaches infinty" is easy to misunderstand and is best replaced by "x increases without bound".

I would like to use polar coordinates.

Cross multiply and take the limits.

Is it not understandable that, in either case, the indeterminate form

In calculus it is used as shorthand notation for limits.

In complex analysis and other interesting areas of mathematics it can have other meanings...

The unit circle corresponds to the equator of the sphere.

The following are undefined:

No, 1/oo is not equal to 0. The expression 1/oo represents the reciprocal of infinity, which is undefined in mathematics.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
