discrete mathematics – Why does my php code return inf?

Questions:

I have a math problem where I am trying to calculate the total combination of values in a set… when I try and run my calculation it just returns INF instead of a number…

$tally = 1;
foreach ($output as $key => $er) {
  $tally = $tally *(ord(strtolower($er)) - 96);
}
echo $tally;
How to&Answers:

If when you try and echo a number and isntead PHP gives you “INF”, it is because PHP thinks that the number is infinite, or too large to be stored in its memory.

You can confirm this by echo is_infinite($tally);
