Exciting math: the infinite hotel paradox 11/9/2015 •

German mathematician David Hilbert created this famous paradox about an infinite hotel in the 1920s. Hilbert wanted to show that it is rather hard to wrap our minds around the concept of infinity. You are welcome to watch the video and check it for yourself!


The paradox and mathematical problem consists in the following: imagine a hotel with an infinite number of rooms that is totally booked up with an infinite number of guests. What if one more guest wants to check in? Or perhaps 40? Or a bus with an infinite number of passengers? Only a resourceful manager knows how to solve the problem…
