Sorry, your attachment failed and so did your attempt to explain what you meant.

You write "From 0 to 1. Start at the end, end at the start, 1 Infinitithe to 0.9 recurring." and have in image of $$ 1^{10^{\infty}}. $$ Note that $10^{\infty}=\lim_{x\to\infty}10^x=0$ and so $$ 1^{10^{\infty}}=1^0=1. $$ Your, ah, poetry doesn't mean anything to me. You haven't defined "Infinitithe" and I'm beginning to doubt your ability to define it.

Let's forget about the e on the end. Prefix: Infini Cardinal: Infinitith Measurement: Infinimetre Time: Infinisecond Number: Infinity

Infinity is not a number, so an infinitieth doesn't exist in the way that a thousandth ($1 \over 1000$) or a fiftieth ($1 \over 50$) exist. In standard Real Analysis the syntax $x=\infty$ is shorthand for a process whereby we study what happens to an expression in $x$ when we allow $x$ to grow without bound. Thus $${1 \over \infty} = \lim_{x \to \infty} {1 \over x}$$ The right hand side has a precise mathematical meaning, but to paraphrase it is "the number that $1 \over x$ gets arbitrarily close to as $x$ gets larger and larger". There is a fairly large body of theory behind this definition covering things like whether there is a unique number that $1 \over x$ nears. However, what we can say is that $$\lim_{x \to \infty} {1 \over x} = 0$$ Last edited by v8archie; March 20th, 2015 at 05:08 AM.

Math Team Joined: Jan 2015 From: Alabama Posts: 3,264 Thanks: 902  I see that you are from England, so these are not "mistranslations" from some other language, but I don't recognize any of these words (except "infinity", but I don't understand your use of it here). Are you getting these words from some book or math paper or are these your own invention?

These words are as far as I'm aware my own invention. Perhaps this will help. 10 Ininitiths = 1 Atto

If that's the case, it has nothing to do with infinity. The Wikipedia page shows exactly how large it is. I think you are just making random stuff up. There's certainly more linguistics than mathematics to this idea thus far.
