Finite 8 and Infinite As Horizontal 8 Plus....

8 is finite, NOT infinite,
The horizontal of 8 leads to the sign of infinity,
Which could confuse some who misunderstands the concept,
strictly speaking, infinity means infinitely many,
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 9, 10, ...1000,...100,000....
which is huge and endless, while number 8 means a amount
that we can count, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,8,
There is a formula leads to the outcome of infinity,
That is: the limit of as x --> c, c as a constant such as 5,
with formula 1 over (x-c), for example, lim_{x-->c) [1/(x-c)]
is equal to infinity...
I feel the urge to explain this
since in some online blogs, folks overlook the accurate
implication of infinity, thus, horizontal of 8
is infinity, but infinity is bigger than number 8,
Infinity can be expressed in ways that finite numbers
are applied and thanks for the glittering minds,
You rock, keep math GRAND!

  1. it's fun to consider the numbers and concepts.

    I do love math so.

  2. you are such a math fan and star ...

    keep it up.
