It is obvious that it will always be x+2 - x = 2; but having x replaced with infinity we will have (inf+2 - inf) and inf-inf=undefined and we don't get an answer. (you would probably send me to the theory of limits and etc. the thing i want to find out is why infinity was made this way, what was the reason for this?) November 24th, 2013, 04:31 PM   #22

You could say similar things about (x - 1)/(x^2 - 1) and the value x = 1.

Perhaps my hint was not obvious enough. Google [removable discontinuity].

I think you guys have given me enough answers to obsess on, thank you very much!
