Best Answer

Great question. You're right. "Googolplex" is not the biggest number.

-- "Googol" = 10100

-- "Googolplex" = 10googol

-- "Googolplexian" = 10googolplex

-- "Googolnormous" = 10googolplexian (not really; I made that one up just now)

-- "Graham numbers" . . . We don't know anything about them, but they're bigger.

-- "Infinity" . . . technically, not a number; defined as "more than the largest number".

But . . . the catch is: There is no such thing as "largest number". Whatever number

you want to describe, no matter how big it is, all I have to do is add ' 1 ' to yours,

and I have a number that's bigger than your number.

No, Infinity is never ending, where as a googolplex is a fixed number.

No googolplex is a number however infinity is not it is a word or a symbol

No infinity is smaller than googolplexian

"Googolplex" is a definite number. "Infinity" is bigger than any definite number, so it's bigger than a googolplex. No number is bigger than infinity. The only we can add to that is a suggestion that you learn how to spell "googolplex".

Infinity is bigger.

No infinity is smaller than googolplexian

"Googolplex" is a definite number. "Infinity" is bigger than any definite number, so it's bigger than a googolplex. No number is bigger than infinity. The only we can add to that is a suggestion that you learn how to spell "googolplex".

no. infinty is the biggest number but it goes on forever so it is irrational. googolplex plus one is bigger and you can always add more and more on. numbers go on forever. Infinity is not a number.

Infinity is bigger.

Mathematically = No. Googolplex is a number, and you can do all the mathematical operations with it. For example: (2 googolplex) plus (2 googolplex) = 4 googolplex. Infinity is more than any number you can write, and you can't do any mathematical operations with it. Example: (Infinity) divided by (3,000) = still infinity. Another example (I can't resist this): (Infinity) divided by (googolplex) = still infinity. But in our physical universe, nothing is infinite! Here's an example. If you were to fill the universe (its entire volume) with particles and with no empty spaces, it would take about 10^80 particles. Therefore you wouldn't even have enough space in the universe to write the number googolplex!

Yes infinity is bigger than Google infinity used where we can not measure things, but in Google we can measure.

Infinity

googolplex is 10 to the googol power, which is 1 followed by a googol number of zeros. The next whole number is googolplexs plus 1. There are no official names beyond a googolplex, however; some have suggested googolduplex for 10 to the googolplex power, and you can keep going until infinity, the highest possible number

There is only one place above it, that is Googolplexplex or googolduplex. It contains a googolplex of zero's. Greater than googolplexplex is only infinity.
