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.

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.

or heres a quote from a guy with his PHD in math Richard E. Barrans Jr., Ph.D. PG Research Foundation, Darien, Illinois ===================================================== 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.

Here you go. Have a nice read. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof_that_0.999..._equals_1 http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.0.9999.html http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasci/math99/math99167.htm http://qntm.org/pointnine http://www.faqs.org/faqs/sci-math-faq/specialnumbers/0.999eq1/ http://polymathematics.typepad.com/polymath/2006/06/the_saga_contin.html

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"

Happy, no. Convinced, yes. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

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!

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>
