# Infinity+1

Which is more, infinity or infinity plus one? Why?

### Hint

One is not necessarily one more than the other.### Answer

They are equal.Don't believe me?

Think about it like this: You have an infinite group and an infinite plus one group. If each item in a group has another to go with it in the other group, there is an equal amount.

for this we'll say X is the one.

Here are the groups:

[x,1,2,3,4,5,6,7....]

[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8....]

See how the groups match up evenly? Because both will go on forever, each number will have a match.

But what if you add in the X at the end? You can't. There's no end to infinity. So there's no place to put it at the end.
