# Can 0 be equal to 5?

Let's say we have a non-finite number $$x$$, when $$x = 5 + 5 + 5 + \cdots (\text{continues on forever})$$,
therefore $$x = 5+x$$ or $$\therefore 0=5$$.

Find the mistake!

How can you write two different definitions for the same no i-e x.If you say that you've done it because x is a general infinite number that you can use here even then you cannot add or subtract infinities.
