Re: i dont think infinity is a number.

by Taz (no login)

What do you mean I can't use it as a number because it has no boundaries? Numbers don't have boundaries - there are an infinite amount of numbers!

Infinity + 1 or infinity * 2 are both still infinity, and I said infinity first.

        * pi has, not "may have", an infinite value...lkt153 on May 17
         *Nobody has found a pattern to pi, so how do you know it has an infinite value?Taz on May 17
          * Just by the fact that it's represented by a division and it's value has no pattern...lkt153 on May 17

            why not?...Guy Smilie on May 17
