Spoiler for i guess

Not sure if this is relevant but just say, for example, 10% of infinity, ?/10, is still ? but a differnet level of infinity correct?

like

(?/10) / ?

it wouldnt be ?/? as in 1 as in 100%.... it would be .1 as in 10%

Very simple. What is the percentage of even numbers in the set of all natural numbers? The answer is 50%. Even though both sets are infinite, since one set is a subset of another set it can be expressed as a percentage of the total set. In some cases it can be calculated precisely, but in some (like this problem) it can only be approximated.
