I am very very new to math as a whole, so please excuse my n00biness.
An asymptote of a curve is a line that continually approaches the curve but never meets it at any finite distance. The distance between the line and the curve approaches zero as they tend to infinity. When we say variable n tends to infinity it means as n gets very very large. If we look at 1/n as n tend to infinity, then n gets very large and 1/n goes to zero
So my question is: Based on the above can
1/n be analogous to the distance between a line and a curve, and
n thought of as the increase in the size of the two?
