    Infinity is not a number, it is a concept, but apparently anything multiplied by 0 is 0, so probably 0.

    Infinity times 0 isn't defined.

    Anything times 0 is 0, yes, but not for infinity. You can treat infinity as a number with addition to a certain height, but not with multiplication.

    Look at this (Name infnity I for now);

    1/I = 0, so 1 = 0*I
    2/I = 0, so 2 = 0*I
    .
    .
    .
    and so on.

    Ivanhoe, check the caln RUNning pawn, all mathematicians, and we all know eachother in real life 🙂

    Let's say we have one chocolate bar to divide amongst infinitely many people. What everyone gets must be smaller then anything you can hold. Smaller then 1/100, even smaller then 1/100000000, and so on....the only number we can get with that property is 0. In other words, 1/I=0

    What about this!

    0*I = lim(x -> 0) x * tan(x + pi()/2))
    = -1
