anonymousWhat is the biggest number other than infinity that humans know about?

As shown.


It depends on the human. It is said that in prehistoric times humans were only capable of handling the numbers 1, 2, and 3. Nowadays we know that there is no "biggest number" because the numbers form an infinite series.

Every English sentence begins with a capital letter and ends with a mark of punctuation. There are no exceptions. When you neglect that basic housekeeping, it speaks poorly of your respect and integrity.

There are two kind of large numbers, the ones we make up and the ones that signify something. Of the first type, perhaps the googolplexian is the largest, although you could take that idea as many steps toward infinity as you like. The largest of the second type that I have heard of is the number of ways a shuffled deck of cards can arrange itself, 52!, although, again, you could add as many decks of cards as you like to the shoe.
