Let's call our "anynumber" **n**. As **n**
gets smaller and smaller, it becomes increasingly insignificant in relation to
the denominator. Thus, the limit of **n** as
**n** approaches 0 = 0.

Now, let's look at what happens when n becomes infinitely large: One would think that infinity divided by infinity = 1. However, we must remember that "infinity" is not a specific number, so our general rule does not apply here. The detailed proof of infinity/infinity=0 is in the attached reference link.
