0.9999.....to infinity is equal to 1

  1. Prove it. Bring me evidence that this is what "the greatest mathematicians of all time" believe. The only mathematical "proof" you have is a string of nines and your opinion. I strongly suspect there is no roght or wrong answer to this question.
     
  2. shut up. Youre wrong. Face it. Your little baby logic isnt going to overturn scienfic and mathematical fact, nor is your false ability to think out of the box and try to change the topic going to work.
     
  3. All i asked for was a quote.
     
  4. or heres a quote from a guy with his PHD in math

    Oh, this is one of those "classic" algebra problems, sort of like math trivial pursuits.

    let x = 0.999999.... forever
    then 10x = 9.9999999...... forever

    then 10x minus x = 9.99999.... minus 0.99999....
    which equals exactly 9

    so 10x -x = 9x
    and 10x-x = 9

    so 9x = 9
    x = 1

    done.
    Just sort of a cute thing with math.

  6. infinity is infinity, there is no 1.
     
  7. OT?
     
  8. I'm trying to find the 4 proofs that the guy posted, and people were like "well, i can't prove any of those wrong but they are different because they don't look the same"
     
  9. *blush* your place or mine? *wink*

    hahaha
     
  10. if it was ot, it would be a bet for over or under 50 pages XD
     
  11. Happy, no. Convinced, yes. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  12. infinity hurts my head <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  13. You cant be convinced yet! The thread hasnt even lasted 2 full pages!


    We need another non-believer in here so we can prove it to him! This thread cant die yet!
     
  14. Oh and its official, I'm joining OT now.
     
  15. if you act like any of the members on this forum you will be banned.

    hehe.
     
  16. actually, they loved us because we brought a ton of chordate/p996t shit over there.
     
  17. put godz as your referrer if it asks XD. it's fun, but for the first couple days you will be stuck in the initiation forum. it's worth it though, there are 955 people in the main forum right now, 1248 in all the forums total.

    EDIT:

    Active Members in the last 30 days: 31,921

    EDIT AGAIN: if you do join, after you get past initiation don't post anything for like the first week, just read. you'll get to know some of the jokes, some of the normal responses (parody threads, copy pasting the first post in a thread if it's retarded, copy pasting and translating (arabic, chinese, whatever) first post if it's REALLY retarded). and don't post a thread for like a year unless it's really important <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  18. Something in my gut still doesn't buy it, but I haven't the heart to continue arguing.
     
  19. hahaha!
     
  20. I'm not buying it, I WANT PROOF!
     
  21. that was draper, right?
