I understand that infinity - X = infinity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

However, what I don't understand is this. If I have:infinity - 1 = infinity, ANDinfinity - 5 = infinity, is the first infinity larger than the second?

If so, how can that be? Because they are infinite, how can one really be larger than the other?

Also, you can't add to infinity, right? Or can you? *confused*

Thanks!
