    pH of 14 implies that it's highly basic and there are virtually no hydrogen ions in that solution.

    When pH increases the H+ concentration decreases !

    If you want to understand why pH + pOH = 14 pH means negative log though so the pH is very small meaning that theres virtually no H+

    \[pH = =\log_{10} [H ^{+}]\]

    Usually pH ranges are: From 1 to around 6 it is acidic And when pH = 7 it is considered as neutral When pH is above 7 it is considered as basic.
