Math Focus: Mainly analysis and algebra
We know of the existence of infinite decimals because we can know that all finite decimals are rational.
We know that repeating infinite decimals exist because we can prove that they are rational.
We know that non-repeating decimals exist because we know that there are numbers that are not rational.

Infinitely many primes/rationals does not imply infinitely large primes/rationals, only arbitrarily large primes/rationals.

A doesn't have to have infinitely large elements to be infinitely large. For example, the set of rationals between zero and one.

Primes or rationals. The statement applies equally to primes or rationals (or natural numbers).

No. Length of any prime number is fixed even if it is too large. If you think so, give an example.
