This question and this question are both asking about $\frac{1}{\infty}=0$, though the first one is specifically asking about interpreting it in the context of probability. Should one of these questions be closed as a duplicate? Or, should someone post an all-encompassing question (and answer) about this topic, so that others can be closed as a duplicate of it? If so, who's up for it?

These $\frac{1}{\infty}$ questions are annoying. Luckily, they are not terribly frequent, and the OP has found a variant. My inclination is to interpret "duplicate" quite narrowly, and not close.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree—I think the particular focus on probability in the first of the two links makes it a distinct enough question. $\endgroup$ – Isaac Jun 12 '12 at 21:23
