# How to use the isinf method in Julia

Programming Bytes

### Overview

The isinf(x) method can be used to check if the given value is infinity or not.

### Syntax

isinf(x) -> Bool
Julia isinf function Syntax

### Argument

x: The value that is to be checked.

### Return value

This method returns true if the provided value is infinite. Otherwise, false is returned.

### Code

The code below demonstrates how to use the isinf method.

## find isinf of 10 / 0
println( "isinf(10 / 0) => $(isinf(10 / 0))") ## find isinf of 10 println( "isinf(10) =>$(isinf(10))")

## find isinf of 0
println( "isinf(0) => \$(isinf(0))")
Using the abs method

### Explanation

In the code above, we do the following:

• Line 2: We use the isinf method with (10/0) as an argument. Any non-zero value divided by 0 produces an infinite value. So the isinf(10/0) will return true.
• Line 5: We use the isinf method with 10 as an argument. The isinf(10)will return false because 10 is a finite value.
• Line 8: We use the isinf method with 0 as an argument. The isinf(0)will return false because 0 is a finite value.
