Although a circumference would be finite as it encloses a finite space, if you said that the diameter was infinite (presuming you can say that) would this then make the circumference is infinite?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Another was to look at it, is if you take a circle of finite size and then keep enlarging it to infinity does this mean the circumference is infinite?

My head hurts, can anyone help?
