 Ian Uy wrote:this will produce a relatively small number. And if I subtract that small number to value 2, the result will not be different. It is still 2.36 x 10^19,709. Right? Pretty much. Consider your numbers. Copy Code `Value 2 = 2.36 x 10^19,709` There are about 1.0 x 10^80 atoms in the known universe. If we discovered that there were actually a billion other universes out there, there would still only be 1.0 x 10^89 atoms in all of them combined. So your number (2.36 x 10^19,709) is what would be known in the mathematical community as "big... really big." Relatively speaking (compared to your first number)... Copy Code `Value 1 = 1.36 x 10^58`...is really, really small. Pretty much, for all intents and purposes, practically zero. So your question boils down to something like, "If I take all the matter in the in the known universe -- every tree, every person, every planet, every sun, every black hole contained in all 100-billion known galaxies -- and manage to sneeze into a parallel dimension, what percentage did I decrease the weight of the universe? And you would still be way off from your example. Enjoy, Robert C. Cartaino
