Q: What fractions are closest to zero?

Write your answer...

Fractions are infinitely dense and this means that between any two fractions there an infinite number of fractions. If any fraction, f, laid claims to being the nearest, there would be infinitely many fractions between 0 and f and so infinitely many fractions which were closer to 0. This means that f could not be the closest. The argument can be used again and again and so there cannot be a fraction closest to 0.

The 3 equivalent fractions of zero is 0,0, and 0.

I think you probably mean fractions whose denominator is zero. This is because you can't divide by zero.

Absolute zero is zero degrees Kelvin. The closest temperature that has gotten to absolute zero is 0.0001K for helium gas.

The denominator cannot be zero.

the difference between two equal fractions is zero.

It reduces to zero. That is the Zero Property of division/fractions.

Th only decimal that can be closest to zero is zero itself. For any other decimal number, no matter how close to zero, it is always possible to find infinitely many numbers which are closer to zero.

The answer depends on "compared with what". The fraction 3/8 is close to zero compared to 7/8, but it is far from zero compared to 3/80.Fractions are infinitely dense and so, given anyfraction, there are infinitely many fractions between that fraction and zero. All of these will be closer to zero. And if you pick any one of these, there will be infinitely many between it and zero which will be closer still. And so it goes on.

It is close to 1/8.

Zero.

Zero.

1

A fraction with a value of less than zero.

Fractions and decimals

A nonzero whole number is a quantity which does not equal zero and number without fractions.

1/9 as a decimal is .11 which rounds to zero

The fraction with the greatest denominator and the greatest difference between nominator and denominator (number above and below the dividing line) has the lowers absolute value (is closest to zero).

There is no difference in value between "equal" fractions: the difference is zero.

If two fractions are equal then the difference between them is zero (0).

Sao Tome and Principe.

Yes. Any value besides zero can be negative.

Zero.

When you subtract a fraction from itself. Two equivalent fractions also have a difference of zero.

The concept of LCM is not applicable to fractions. This is because all numbers are evenly divisible by all non-zero numbers and all numbers are multiples of all non-zero numbers.
