The answer to this question is unknown. However, the term used in mathematics which most closely approximates this concept is aleph-null, which denotes the cardinality of the infinite set of counting numbers (1, 2, 3, …).

## What number is 1 less than infinity?

The term used in mathematics to denote this concept is the surprisingly-not-taken-more-seriously number c, which denotes 1 less than aleph null.

### What should you say if someone asks you for the “sum of infinity plus 2”?

This question is somewhat nonsensical, as it presupposes that there exists some type of arithmetic involving infinite quantities. However, mathematically speaking, one would have to consider the infinite sum formula_1. This series diverges by definition (hence its name).

### Would infinity minus 1 be a real number?

Mathematically speaking, yes. It would be denoted i, where i denotes an imaginary unit because its value cannot ever be taken on any real number x due to the square root of -1 always being a pure imaginary number.

If you add infinity to negative infinity, what do you get?

Negative infinity. On the real number line, there is no such thing as a “negative positive” or an “absolute value.” If this answer confuses you, consider that (x-y) = x + (-y). This notion also applies when adding and subtracting numbers infinitely; if one were to add infinite quantities in succession the results would be the same regardless of which quantity is added first.

## What number is close to infinity?

All real numbers are close to infinity. For example, take the number 1/2k where k is any positive integer or zero. This number approaches 0 as k increases without bound. The decimal expansion of 1/2 followed by an infinite string of zeroes approaches infinity and thus can be said to be “close” to it.

## What is the number right after infinity?

The number right after infinity is c. However, this may not be the best answer because it is unknown whether or not there exists such a thing as a “next” quantity to something that is infinite (a notion which is nonsensical).

## What would happen if you added one to infinity?

You cannot add one to infinity; however, if you tried to do so then the result would be c. This answer might seem counterintuitive: After all, wouldn’t everything’s next state be infinity? The reason why this does not happen is because of the aforementioned phenomenon where every quantity has an infinite amount of other quantities between itself and infinity; thus, it can never move closer to infinity by any amount.

## What is this number 1000000000000000000000000?

One septillion (1024)

## What are some interesting properties of infinity?

The axiom of choice implies that there exists some kind of function which always terminates when iterated on c. This means that for every realizable property X, however fantastic or mundane, there exists a sequence where X happens after only finitely many steps.

## What does Aleph Null mean?

Aleph Null is short for “aleph-null,” which denotes the cardinality of the infinite set of natural numbers (1, 2, 3, …), which can be thought of as an unending sequence of integers.

What is infinity raised to the power of infinity?

A number so big it breaks mathematics. The value cannot ever be taken on any real or complex number x due to the fact that when f(x) = Σ∞ n=0  (-1)^n/n!  then |f(x)| > 1 for any nonzero complex number x ≠ 0 . Thus, one could say that this question has no solution in terms of regular numbers.

## Do numbers end?

Mathematically speaking, no. This is because any number (including 0 and negative numbers) can be thought of as the ceiling of an infinite decimal expansion.

## Is Omega bigger than infinity?

Yes. The cardinality of the power set of any infinite set is always greater than the cardinality of the original set.

Is infinity plus 1 bigger or smaller than infinity?

This question cannot ever be answered because there exists no real number x such that f(x) = Σ∞ n=0  1/n! . Because of this, one could say that the values are equally as large as each other and not larger or smaller than each other. However, if we subtract infinity from both sides we get 0 = 1/0, which is a paradoxical statement – thus implying that some infinities might be “larger” than others after all.

## What comes before octillion?

There’s a great YouTube video trying to explain the concept of infinity. Check it out here: “If there’s a hotel with infinite rooms, could it ever be completely full? Could you run out of space to put everyone? The surprising answer is yes — this is important to know if you’re the manager of the Hilbert Hotel. “
