I know how calculus computes it, I don't know for a fact the arrow computes
it the same way but whatever the method the arrow uses it comes up with the
same answer that calculus does, and calculus proves there is no logical
contradiction and hence no paradox in what the arrow is doing.

If you don't like approximations and floating-point numbers and want an
exact answer then run Mathematica on your computer and solve it
symbolically, it can solve calculus problems much better than you can.
