Every calculator has a "ceiling" or a "limit" as to how big a number it can handle. Anything above that limit, it should say "Overflow". On this calculator the owner has programmed  it to say "infinity", which means it overflows.

1e1001 is just 1 with 1001 zeros after it...indeed very large but not infinity.

If 1e1001 is infinity then what is 1e1002, 1e1003...etc.?

I have to wait for moderation so I can't see the image just yet.

 

Edit: I see the image now but its just 1e1001 in the calc. The infinity sign is there as placement because the number is too large for the calculator. 1e1001 is not infinity.

Look up numbers like Googleplex, Graham's number, or TREE(3).

 

These are massive numbers we can't even comrehend them.
