What is infinity

  1. 1. What is Infinity?Infinity ...? ... its big ... ... its huge ... ... its tremendously large ...... its extremely humongosly enormous ...... its ... Endless!
  2. 2. Infinity is an idea that has no endIn our world, we dont have anything like it.So Just think infinity as an idea that is "endless", or "boundless".Infinity is not a real number It is an idea An idea of something without an end.Infinity cannot be measured.
  3. 3. In Geometry a "Line" has infinite length ... it goes in both directions without an end. If it has one end it is called a Ray, and if it has two ends it is called a Line Segment, but that needs extra information to define where the ends are.
  4. 4. We can sometimes use infinity like it is a number, but also infinity does not behave like a real number. For example: ∞ + 1 = ∞ Which says that infinity plus one is still equal to infinity. If something is already endless, you can add 1 and it will still be endless. The most important thing about infinity is that: ∞ <x< ∞ Which is mathematical shorthand for "minus infinity is less than any real number, and infinity is greater than any real number"
  5. 5. Special Properties of Infinity ∞+∞=∞ -∞ + -∞ = -∞ ∞×∞=∞ -∞ × -∞ = ∞ -∞ × ∞ = -∞Some properties x+∞=∞ x + (-∞) = -∞ x - ∞ = -∞ x - (-∞) = ∞ For x>0 : x×∞=∞ x × (-∞) = -∞ For x<0 : x × ∞ = -∞ x × (-∞) = ∞
  6. 6. "Undefined" Operations 0×∞ 0 × -∞ ∞ + -∞Some undefined properties ∞-∞ ∞/∞ ∞0 1∞
