No, because there is NO "biggest number that exist". Given anything that purported to be the "biggest number" adding 1 gives an even bigger.

The biggest number is $\displaystyle B=\underbrace{99999....9}_{\infty}$ Funny

Now you know that there is no largest number, ask yourself this is 100 larger than or smaller than +10?

What is the notation of R with line above it? Thank for answering. I still not understood "Why there isn't a notation for the biggest number that exist"? So, If it didn't exist, is there a proof not by adding one to the biggest number that I found but another proof. I want to see another proof. Thank you If You give an ANOTHER Example....
