I`m a little confused about something.
I was reading up on black holes today
and on one of the sites I was reading it
said that black holes can have diffrent
sizes. And that if a black hole "sucks" in
more matter is will get bigger. This is what
is confusing me, when a star becomes a black
hole it is compressed into a singularity
or infinity. So if its compressed infinatly
how can it get bigger??

thanks
