So, does P=NP? Just curious what people think.

If N=1 or if P=0, then yes.

You will say that I don't really know you
And it will be true.

how can infinity be in an equation?

Okay, going off what you are really meaning, (N = "not"). I'd say the answer is "no." I'm sure it is possible to find a semantical loophole, but by definition, P =/= NP.

It's not "questioning" the validity of what you wrote. I really don't know, please pardon me if that's ignorant.

ooOOOoo... somehow, I knew this was an interesting question, but elected to wait for clarification rather than look it up myself. :P

I will get back to this after I give this some thought.

Infinity can exist in a mathematical equation. The problem there is to find a way to negate the infinity by cancelling it out, or getting the equation down to 1/infinity, which essentially means 0, since its so small in measure, that we might as well call it 0.
