This symbol stands for a number which is so large it cannot be measured.

Often people encounter the number infinity when they try to divide any number by zero on a calculator. Dividing any (non-zero) number by zero is always equal to infinity. A calculator cannot process such a large number. Instead it locks up and displays an error message such as "Undefined" or "Error".
