proportion between finite and infinite

Is there a proportion between a finite and an infinite? finite and a potential infinite?

Re: proportion between finite and infinite

Me no understand big_smile. finite over infinite? as in Limes? 0, i presume.

Re: proportion between finite and infinite

finite stuff: x  smile
infinite stuff: ±∞  smile

proportion a=k.b

x=k.±∞
x=±∞ for all k

no. finite quantities are not finitely proportional to infinite ones.  tongue
