Waste of time

It returns NaN if I enter 0, and Infinity if I enter a number >= 3.0e-324. But if I enter, for example, 2.999999999e-324, it underflows amd considers it as 0, thus returning NaN.

5 minutes or so to get that number. 5 stars for making me waste my time in such a stupid way (normally I just close the tab). This game should have medalsor easter eggs (if it doesn't yet).
Please make a Part II ("multiply by zero").

0/0=NaN

Not quite correct

The closer you get to zero, the larger the quotient will be, or in math terms the 'limit' of any number divided by x as x approaches zero is infinity. That is, it gets as large enough to be bigger than any fixed number. (There is no number 'infinity').
But division must be the opposite of multiplication, so if some number (let's say 5) were divided by zero and you got infinity, then that would mean that 0 times infinity would equal 5. Since zero times absolutely anything is still zero, division by pure zero is left undefined.

Egotractor responds:

But how am I gonna fit all that into a script with AS2? HOW?! D:

You cant divide a number by zero

Egotractor responds:

Yes you can, but the answer is always Infinity.

LOL?

I Entered 0 And It Said That 0 Wasn't A Number

Egotractor responds:

0 divided by 0 = NaN because Infinite/Infinite = NaN

YOU FOOL >:C

You're joking?

Whats up here? Is there a joke I'm missing? It looks pretty and the music is actually quite relaxing but why would you make this? It is pointless!
