## Bug #14014

### NaN.finite?

**Description**

Ruby gives contradictory answers for NaN:

> (0/0.0).finite? => false > Complex(0/0.0, 0).finite? => true

Note that `(0/0.0).infinite?`

returns `nil`

, so the float answer of `false`

looks even more wrong.

The two solutions I see are either changing `Float#finite?`

to return `true`

for NaN, or to raise in both cases.

I'd lean towards raising in both cases, as NaN can not be said to be finite or infinite

### History

#### Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) about 2 years ago

**Status**changed from*Open*to*Rejected*

NaN is not a (either infinite or finite) number, definitely.

Also it is not positive nor negative, so its signedness is nonsense too.

`Complex(0/0.0, 0).finite?`

returns `false`

in the trunk already.

#### Updated by Eregon (Benoit Daloze) about 2 years ago

Has this been backported to the 2.4 branch? I think it should.

What commit fixed it?

#### Updated by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune) about 2 years ago

Thanks, sorry I should have tested trunk.

#### Updated by Eregon (Benoit Daloze) almost 2 years ago

Should this be marked as closed rather than rejected and a test be added for NaN for the backport to be performed then?
