# What fraction is closer and closest to 0?

-- Before I can name one that's closer, you have to give me a fraction,

so I know what fraction mine has to be closer than.

-- There's no such thing as "closest", unless you're looking at a list of

permitted choices that you're not sharing.

### What fraction is closest to zero?

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.

### Which fraction is closest to actual pi?

There is no such fraction. It is a transcendental number and so has a decimal representation that is infinite in length. So each additional decimal digit gives an equivalent fraction that is closer to pi than the previous one. Thus 31/10 = 3.1 is closer than 3 314/100 = 3.14 is closer 3141/1000 = 3.141 is closer still and so on. There is no such fraction. It is a transcendental number and so has a…

### Is 0.13 the closest to 0 or 0.032?

13 is .13 units away from 0. To find how close it is to .032 we subtract. .13-.032 is .098 so since this is less than .13 we can say that .13 is closer to .032 than it is to 0. It is hard to see this with these numbers. Let's use 3. Is it closer to 0 or 5. 3 is 3 units away from 0 and 5-3=2 so it is 2 units away…

### What fraction is closet to 1?

If you are talking about it on the number line, there is no such fraction because the base/denominator of the fraction can get very high. As in there is no maximum limit to numbers and there is also no limit to the maximum denominator. The bigger the denominator, the smaller the fraction is and the closer it is to one on the number line. Therefore if you are talking about the number line then it…
