 Make the least of these digits (Posted on 2003-04-13)
You can use the digits 1,2,and 3 once only and any mathematical symbols you are aware of, but no symbol is to be used more than once. The challenge is to see if you can make the smallest positive number.

Special rules: You cannot use Euler's number or pi or infinity.

Special thanks to: Rhonda Wendel for Make the most of these digits and for the problem text which was slightly altered.

Does zero count: 1+2-3=0
If this is the solution then it's a very misleading question and you should be shot Alan.
tan(2^-(31!)) is the closest to zero I could get assuming you can't use more numbers like e(2.8) or other algegbraic notations of values like pi.
