what is the lowest and Unique value from 0 to 1000?

I am trying to solve the question given by our math teacher to Bid the lowest and unique value which has to be a numeric value with at most 2 decimal digits only.

Eg: 1.09, 0.12, 5.40, and 0.01 etc etc.

The bid range will be 0 to 1000.

Those above eg, and lowest would be used by other freinds too, So I fell that there would be duplication of lowest and unique number. so whats ur suggestion that it should be lowest and unique which others wont know about

I would be happy to get all all the forum users to kindly guess each lowest and Unique Value range from 0 to 1000 and with the utmost 2 decimal digits only. SO every one would have an idea. PLease throw all the ideas

thanks for your lowest and unique answer please

There's no stable strategy for this game, as everything depends on what your friends do. If you think everyone will be taking 0.01, 0.02, and 0.03 to avoid taking a value so low that there will be duplicates, then you could just take 0.
