Is it correct in mathematics to claim:
1/((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+? = 0 ?
And is it also correcr to claim
1/((((((10^0)/10)+10^1)/10)+10^2)/10)+? > 1 ?
Is it is therefore correct to claim 0 > 1?

Or can you give some guidelines for beginners, when and why which of
the limits has to be applied?

Regards, WM
