1/infinity?

Nice idea but unfortunately that is not a rational number, which is defined as the ration of two integers, x/y where y > 0. Since infinity is not an integer, the suggested ratio is not a rational number.

The correct answer is that there is no such number. If any number laid claim to being the smallest positive rational, then half of that number would have a better claim. And then a half of THAT number would be a positive rational that was smaller still. And so on.

no. an integer is a whole, positive number, a rational number can be positive, negative, or a fraction

Positive rational = 0.0000000001Positive irrational = 0.0000000001*pi
