Anything / infinity = 0, except infinity. It's hits the limit. In this sense "limit" is used in it's proper context but I still say infinity's a number. I think any number can be treated as a limit. I've seen how 1, the square root of 2, the square root of 5, and phi are also limits (or mirrors as I like to call them). Oh yeah and there's 0.edit on 3/19/2012 by circlemaker because: edit to add 0

So anything/infinity = 0?
So:
1/infinity = 0
2/infinity = 0
This means
1/infinity = 2/infinity
Which means
1 = 2
This is the problem with using the concept of infinity as a number...you are creating a paradox.
How do you resolve the above situation?

Here's a question I have wondered for a while... What is the purpose of other bases? I mean I know that we use decimal and it works out nicely because I am used to it, then base 2 is used for computers... probably because analogue things works off of a system similar to binary I am guessing, then there is hexadecimal. I don't know exactly the these bases are used instead of the others, but I am really curious to how the other bases benefit the world, what are the other bases even used for?
