I will use I as a variable for infinity here... As infinity cannot be quantified, we cannot think of it as an actual number. So, the best we can do is treat it as a variable.
The first is A=B=I. So since A and B have the same value, the answer is
A-B=0.
The second set says B=I, and A=2B. So, A=2I. the problem can be simplified as 2I-I=? Which becomes I=? So, the answer is I.
The third problem comes down to I/2-I=?. As I could be either negative or positive, it has 2 possible answers. If I is positive, the answer will be -I/2. If negative, I/2.
Of course, if you want to know what I equals for any of these, the answer you will always arrive at is I=I...
I think I have these maths right, but I am not sure. What are these problems for anyway? They seem more like an exercise in logic than math. The math is only basic algebra.

My name made sense when I first thought it up.
I apologize in advance for the inevitable awkwardness.
