A black hole is actually estimated to be about the size of an American quarter, not 4-5 times the size of the Sun. The reason they're so strong as such a small size is that the gravity from a collapsed star is in the size of a quarter.

I'm being serious here when I ask if the matter that falls into a black hole gets added to it.

If so, wouldn't it increase in size?

the newer theory is that everythign is smashed onto the surface of the blackhole and never actually falls into it, the big debate is whether black holes destroy information, like could you still find the makings of a apple on the black hole surface if it fell in or what that information be lost forever
