When the limit of a function turns out to be infinity ,how should we interpret it ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For ex. we have [itex]\lim_{x \to 0}\frac {1}{x^2} = \infty[/itex]

What does this mean ?

Does it mean that the limit is ∞ or does it mean that the limit does not exist as ∞ is not a number ?

I would appreciate if someone could clarify this doubt .
