I like trying to put online calculators to the test, so I gave the calculator this sum:

10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10

However, the answer came up as:

(Infinity)^10*(Infinity)^10*(Infinity)^10*(Infinity)^10

I would like to know the actual answer to this sum.

Edit: I hope you liked my homework, jeffes02.

Ehhhh...

Well...Um...

We will try to work this sum out from the left

"10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10*10^10^10^10^10"

The sum is divided by multiply symbols in four sections, lets take away one ^10 at each section and expand:

The sum= 10^10^10000000000*10^10^10000000000*10^10^10000000000*10^10^10000000000*

This is where the calculator gets really frustrated at its life choices for being an online calculator instead of a hand-held one.

What does 10^10000000000 mean? It means 10 timing itself by 1000000000 times, which will result in a number with 1000000000 zeroes with a 1 in the front.

And 10^10^10000000000? This is a number that contains 10^10000000000 zeroes in it, or 10^10^10 zeroes.

Illustration:

10000000000000000000000

00000000000000000000000

000000000000......................

.......................00000000000

00000000000000000000000 =10^10^10^10

Where ..... represents

10000000000000000000000

00000000000000000000000

000000000000......................

...(One Hundred Billion Zeroes Later)...

.......................00000000000

00000000000000000000000 =10^10^10

Where ..... represents

10000000000                         =10^10

And the question you are asking for, would be itself timed for four times, meaning the final answer will contain 4x10^10^10 zeroes, let that sink in for a moment.
