// This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {0}.", (10.0 - Double.NegativeInfinity).ToString());

// This will equal Infinity.
printfn \$"10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals {10.0 - Double.NegativeInfinity}."

' This will equal Infinity.
Console.WriteLine("10.0 minus NegativeInfinity equals " + (10 - Double.NegativeInfinity).ToString() + ".")
