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

1. There is no need for being that accurate, so yes.

2. 1 = 1 = 3/3 = 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 0.333... + 0.333... + 0.333... = 0.999...

3. It is exactly 1. Not approaches, not is super-duper close. 0.999... = 1.

4. Holy shit.

5. I don't know. You tell me how it doesen't have an end.

6. its simple. 1/3 is .3 to infinity when converted to decimals. whats .3 repeating timed 3? .9 repeating. its basicaly a problem with decimals not being able to fully describe 1/3+1/3+1/3 (if written with decimals) without going on to infinity. so .9 to infinity IS 1. saying that this is not true is like saying that 1/3 isnt really 1/3.

heres another way to put it. .9 repeating devided by 3 is .3 repeating. .3 repeating is = 1/3. 1/3*3 = 1. get it?

7.
8. i cant believe this has gone on for 7 pages, anyone with any sort of first year math would surely know that .99999... =1. all others without this education that think they know what they are talking about are ignorant, just look at the testimony of professors all over this thread, and the algebraic proofs

9. By being nothingness.

10. Only 1 is truly = to 1

one doesnt = 1

1/2 + 1/2 doesnt = 1

.9999999999999999999999999999999999 doesnt = to 1 But

.9999999999999 = .9999999999999 ONLY

Because I said so!!!!!

I know numerically , mathematically and logically it really does = 1.

But in pure appreance form it doesnt. and technically maybe it does.

11. stfu

12. this thread seriously draws the line between 2 groups of people.

13. The people who understand the definition of infinite, and the ones that don't.

14. If you are in automotive, you dont round off, Dumbshit!

You do precisely what the measurement is.

15. most mathematics can't be conceived like that... therfore you're argument is irrelative.

16. okay, provide me with the links again. I wanna see how this works.

So lets say you times Pandabeat with .999999999999999

you get Pandabeat or pandabeat X .999999999999999?

because I took Logic and they told us that if something is either red or non red.

so something is either 1 or non 1

So therefore .99999999 isnt 1

That is the logic I was basing it on.

17. In real life you could never measure the difference, so the point is mute. In real life it would equal 1.

18. 1/2 + 1/2 =/= 1? get out of the thread.

19. youre just a complete moron, thats all. there have been about 50 links posted in this thread with various solutions for you. If you cant comprehend it, jump off a bridge. Its basic #\$%#ing algebra, or if you want more, we threw calc at you too. just shut up and go away.

20. it's not rounding, its the same number.

21. Moot. You really dissapoint me.

22. the 9s never end. things aren't as simple as red vs notred <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>.

23. Someone in this thread said this and I agree

Practically it is, but technically it isnt.

You lose!

If you take Logic, you will see what I mean. I dont care if the highest level of math porves it. Technical Logic disproves what you are saying.

In real life, yes everyone will agree, but what I am comparing it with. In that field it doesnt work. So just suck it up and accept it!

You will fail the class, if you took the class and keep pushing your views

24. I know, but .99999999999999(infinite) is still short of .00000000000(infinite 0s)0000001 .

therefore it isnt 1

25. Dahhhh, I am sorry.
