My brother says that you can use infinity in a subtraction problem, but it doesn't seem likely. If infitity is an unidentified number, how could you subtract it from a number, or subtract from it? What is the truth?



You win this argument.
You really can't subtract infinity.
Here is a good discussion about this issue:
