# Value of Impulse function

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I am confused with the idea that the value of a delta function is infinity but when given a graph why is there an amplitude/magnitude value for the delta function. I have attached a graph. Assuming the phase is zero I'm trying to write a fourier transform for it.

2. Relevant equations

G(f) = |G(f)| $e^{j\vartheta}$

3. The attempt at a solution
I know that it is a shifted impulse function so would it just be 3δ(f-5)+3δ(f+5)? Any help would be very much appreciated I'm just having a hard time grasping the idea of impulse function having an infinite value but there's an amplitude of 3?
