# The number before infinity?

123 ###### 2009-01-02 20:27:55

Infinity itself isn't a number in the conventional sence therefore not only is there everything before it there is nothing Ie. If 10,000 were the value of infinity I could add 1 to it and that would become infinity so unless somebody finds the point at which numbers stop ascending there will never be a value before infinity, find ding that point is impossible because as I have said before if you pick a number you can always add 1 to it. ###### 2020-05-07 00:28:24

## Related Questions Infinity is an imaginary number so if you meant the previous whole number to infinity it would be expressed as infinity minus one. If you meant the highest number possible before reaching infinity is would be: infinity - 1/infinity There is actually no such thing as infinity, the numbers go on forever..........................and ever....................................:0 No. Because infinity is not actually a number, but rather an indication of a limitless amount, it is mathematically impossible to count to infinity. If the question meant infinity, the answer is none. Infinity is not a number.If the question meant infinity, the answer is none. Infinity is not a number.If the question meant infinity, the answer is none. Infinity is not a number.If the question meant infinity, the answer is none. Infinity is not a number. There is no number right before infinity. One could say that the number before infinity is "infinity minus one", but you cannot use normal subtraction with infinity. Infinity - 1 is still mathematically defined as infinity, as is Infinity + 1. Perhaps the question is referring to the largest number with its own name (other than infinity, which, as previously stated, is not technically a number). A googol is often cited as this number. A googol is defined to be a 1 with a hundred zeroes after it. Alternatively, a googolplex might qualify for the title of largest number with its own name, being a 1 with a googol zeroes after it. A couple of quick side notes are in order here: There are not a googolplex atoms in the visible universe. It is an extremely big number. The search engine company Google named their company after a googol, because of vast amount of information that they process and organize. Infinity means a number that is infinite, so it is not an exact number. It is not possible to know infinity plus infinity, since the sum is not an exact number. Infinity divided by any finite number is infinity. Here are the rules: 1. Infinity divided by a finite number is infinite (I / f = I); 2. Any finite number divided by infinity is a number infinitesimally larger than, but never equal to, zero (f / I = 1 / I); 3. Infinity divided by infinity is one (I / I = 1), or in fact any other positive number (I / I = and so on...); 4. Infinity multiplied by zero (no infinity) is zero (I * 0 = 0); 5. Infinity divided by a positive finite number is infinity (I / +f = I); 6. Infinity divided by a negative finite number is minus infinity (I / -f = -I); 7. Infinity divided by zero is not possible; 8. Infinity plus infinity is infinity (I + I = I); 9. Zero divided by infinity (nothing divided into infinity) equals zero (0 / I = 0); 10. Infinity plus a finite number is infinity (I + f = I); 11. Infinity minus a finite number is infinity (I - f = I); but 12. Infinity minus infinity, due to the nature of infinity, can be zero, infinity, or minus infinity (I - I = -I, 0, I). There is no number greater than infinity. Infinity is defined to be greater than any number, so there can not be two numbers, both infinity, that are different.However, when dealing with limits, one can approach a non-infinite value for a function involving infinity. Take, for example, 2x divided by x, when x is infinity. That value is indeterminate, because infinity divided by infinity is defined as indeterminate, and 2 times infinity is still infinity.But, if you look at the limit of 2x divided by x, as x approaches infinity, you do get a value, and that value is 2. This does not mean that 2x when x is infinity is twice infinity, it just means that, right before x becomes infinity, the ratio is right before 2.Infinity should not be thought of as a number, but rather as a direction. Whereas a number represents a specific quantity, infinity does not define given quantity. (If you started counting really fast for billions of years, you would never get to infinity.) There are, however, different "sizes of infinity." Aleph-null, for example, is the infinity that describes the size of the natural numbers (0,1,2,3,4....) The infinity that describes the size of the real numbers is much larger than aleph-null, for between any two natural numbers, there are infinite real numbers.Anyway, to improve upon the answer above, it is not meaningful to say "when x is infinity," because, as explained above, no number can "be" infinity. A number can approach infinity, that is to say, get larger and larger and larger, but it will never get there. Because infinity is not a number, there is no point in asking what number is more than infinity. Infinity is a concept, not a number. Even if it were considered such, infinity plus one is also infinity, and so infinity minus one is still infinity. So far it is a googol. A googol is a number with a hundred zeroes or: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 All real numbers are finite. Infinity is not a number.All real numbers are finite. Infinity is not a number.All real numbers are finite. Infinity is not a number.All real numbers are finite. Infinity is not a number. it is 100% impossible no matter how hard you try like do u know every single number before infinity do you know how to write infinity if the answer to those questions is no then no Any specific number minus infinity is -∞ Note if you try to subtract infinity from infinity, the answer is undefined - because infinity is a "cardinality" rather than a specific number. No because technically, infinity is not a "number" it is a concept that means without limit, bound or end. so infinity+1=infinity infinity2=infinity and so on. Firstly we don't know infinity value. If you divide any number by infinity then answer will be zero. Example is divide 100/3 by infinity ( let infinity is equal to 1/0). Then answer is 100/3/1/0 you will get zero.
