# How can retards on this board actually believe that 0.999

How can retards on this board actually believe that 0.999... = 1? If it was equal to 1, you would just write 1.

Also... math using infinity does not exist, it is all flawed. Calculus is an approximation.

As well... the null set is not a subset of every step. To have no properties is not a property. Vacuous truths do not exist, they are just insanity.

Is this would this board relies on when they cannot offer a decent counter argument?

How can retards on this board actually believe that .5 + .5 = 1? If it was equal to 1, you would just write 1.

If it was equal to 1, you would just write 1
that's indeed the case, you can just write 1

More generally, every nonzero terminating decimal has two equal representations (for example, 8.32 and 8.31999...), a property true of all base representations. The utilitarian preference for the terminating decimal representation contributes to the misconception that it is the only representation. For this and other reasons—such as rigorous proofs relying on non-elementary techniques, properties, or disciplines—mathematics students can find the equality sufficiently counterintuitive that they question or reject it. This has been the subject of several studies in trolls on mathematics education.

1/3+1/3+1/3=1

1/3=0.333...

0.333...+0.333...+0.333...=0.999...

Vacuous truths do not exist
Yes they do. For example "If OP wasn't a faggot, he would make good threads."

OP, what is 9.999.../10 ?
is it =1 , >1 or <1 ?

There is no addition going on here. It is a single element.

This is just arbitrarily claimed. There is no reason for this to be the case. 0.999.. is simply close to 1, it does not equal 1.

1/3 does not equal 0.333...

This is not an example of a vacuous truth.

Oh boy. The infinitard is back

Very obviously it is less than 1.

is it more than 0.9 ?

Yes.

Your misunderstanding arises from the fact that you believe infinity is a real thing. The concept inherently states that it does not terminate and therefore it is not a number. There is no such thing as 0.999... numbers are definite. They are not changing.

is
9.999.../10 = 0.999... ?

1/3 does not equal 0.333...
it's just different notation we use to write about the same thing, same as 0.999... and 1 you fucking moron

1/3 = 3/10 + 1/30 = 0.3 + 1/30
= 0.3 + 3/100 + 1/300 = 0.33 + 1/300
= 0.33 + 3/1000 + 1/3000 = 0.333 + 1/3000
= 0.333... + 1/inf = 0.333... + 0 = 0.333...

OP why dont you worry about furthering your education or doing something with your knowledge and accepting life for what it is instead of autistic screeching online.

How can retards on this board actually believe that 0.999... = 1?
it is true by definition.

If it was equal to 1, you would just write 1.
then 2/1=2 is false because I could just write 2?

Yes, I saged.

This is just arbitrarily claimed.
Like all of math, yes.

1/3 does not equal 0.333...
Wrong by definition.

Your misunderstanding arises from the fact that you believe infinity is a real thing.
If you want to do math outside of ZFC go ahead.
But don't make claims inside of ZFC, while denying ZFC.

You are doing a different mathematics.

So you also believe that 1.000... != 1, right? After all infinity can't exist so it's not a number.

this kills the 0.999...=1 denier

How can retards on this board actually believe that 2 + 2 = 4? If it was actually 4, you would just write 4.

The funny thing is that this retard linked to wolframalpha as evidence in the past yet wolframalpha itself does say that 0.999... repeating is 1.

Incorrect, tapping on zeroes does not change tjethe value of a number. No, most math is derived from real like axioms.
1/3 does not equal 0.333..., it is a flaw in your writing system. 1/3 exists on the number line but it is not 0.333..., that is simply an approximation.

I am claiming all infinity related math is based on false premises and should be treated like the autistic mind jerking it is.

Kys

Here's why:
Let's say 1/3 = 0.333... this is in base 10
1/3 * 3 = 1.
0.333... * 3 = 1

If 0.333... (repeating forever) is equal to 1/3, then 0.333... * 3 = 1. That is how fractions work.

However, 0.333... (if not being used in a fractional sense) is multiplied by 3, it will not be equal to one. 0.333 * 3 = 0.999... which is not equal to one. it is 0.00...1 less than 1.

No, most math is derived from real like axioms.
It is based on ZFC, brainlet.

1/3 does not equal 0.333

Okay.
You can change the axioms all you want, but you are doing other mathematics unrelated to everything else.

You are essentially redefining terms to fit your needs.

0.999... doesn't actually exist.

Wrong by definition.

I think the idea is that we know it's not equal to one so we find a separate isometry where it is equal to one and use that on our original plane.

Posting an image nullifies your sage.

1 is not 0.99999..
The difference is 0.0...1, the digit 1 comes after an infinite seqence of 0s.

I haven't posted in or even read the thread yet. Even then I know you're a complete brainlet, OP. You're completely ignorant of ALL THE RULES OF ANALYSIS. You don't know what LIMITS are, never seen an epsilon or delta in your life. You dont know know what CONVERGENCE or DIVERGENCE mean. You can only think of math in terms of physical counterparts and processes, unaware of the abstractions needed to properly understand the ideas.

What is 0.000...1? Infinite 0s after the decimal place followed by a 1? Then that's just equal to 0 since you will never reach the 1 since there are infinite 0s before it

0 is zero.
1 is one.

0.99999 is somewhere in between.

There is a difference, obviously, from actual eternity and eternal approximation.

So what is 1/3 then?

0.000...1 is a real number if by 0.000...1 you mean $\lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{1}{x}$

How is 0.000...1 meaningless. Can you not tell that he is trying to say infinite 0s followed by a 1?

How can retards on this board actually believe that 0.999... = 1? If it was equal to 1, you would just write 1.

How can retards on this board believe that 0.25 = 1/4? If it was equal to 1/4, you would just write 1/4.

Nice try plebs

1/3=3/10+3/100+3/1000+...=0.333...=a

3a=1

No, because 1/4 is 1 divided by 4. 0.25 is the actual number

You are mistaken

If we're defining $a=0.0...1=\lim_{n\to\infty}\frac{1}{n}$ then yeah, a=0. But a lot of these brainlet "0.999...=/=1" claimers try to construct 0.0...1 as some sort of weird infinitesimal... which it is not.

How?

If
0.999 *inf* 999 + 0.000 *inf* 001 = 1
Then call
0.999 *inf* 999 = A
And call
0.000 *inf* 001 = B

A + B = 1

A = 1 - B

Therefore.

A < 1

0.999 *inf* 999
0.000 *inf* 001
No such things.

0.999...999 is not a real number

Let 1/9= 0.111...

Multiplying both sides of the equation by 9 will give you:

1=0.999...

waah stop using infinity where I dont want you to

waah let me do whatever I want even if that's not how limits and sums work

There is no such thing as 0.000...1.

A = 1 - B
Therefore.
A < 1
What if B=0? Then A=1

waah only im allowed to use repeating decimals

Repeating decimals make sense only if then can be represented by an infinite sum. You a little dense? 0.9...9 cannot be represented as such so it makes no sense.

0.999...9 is the same as 0.999...

refer to

The proof still doesn't work because you didn't establish B>0

Decide that infinitively repeating decimals are wrong because can't reach infinity
0.000...1 is real even though that's literally a terminating digit after an infinite number of zeros.

I'm not going to quote the other 1/3 = 0.333... retards.

0.333 is the decimal APPROXIMATION of 1/3.
It does not EQUAL 1/3.

Also to the fags going 2+2 = 4, why not just write 4?
Use your brain to do things other than imagine anime girls. No one said two elements cannot combine to equal another element. The claim is that you are claiming singular elements are the EXACT same yet writing them differently in the same notation (decimal).

Infinity does not exist. 0.999... is not a number.

Retard that thinks convergence means equal. I guess asymptotes don't exist either!

I also like how none of you retards even tried to argue against me in regards to the null set. Just shows your level of education, if all you can argue against is 0.999.. != 1.

I also like how none of you retards even tried to argue against me in regards to the null set.
Hopefully I don't have to convince you that $a+0=a$. You could say that every number is the same as that number combined with zero. Sometimes it's useful to acknowledge this fact, sometimes it's not, but it's always true. By the same logic, you can add the null set to any other set and not change the original set, ie. you can add zero to the set's cardinality and not change it. So, just like before, sometimes it's convenient to say that a set contains all it's stated elements and some extra nothing. Since you can do this with every set, $\emptyset$ is a subset of every set.

As per my previous statement, 0 is not an element. Retard.

$\emptyset \neq 0$

The null set possesses no properties. Therefore it cannot be a subset of every set. It is also for this reason vacuous truths do not exist.

"All the females in this room are nude" when there are no females is not a true statement. It is a nonsensical one. Similarly, the null set is not a subset of every set.

This was to your previous statement that a + 0 = a. You are not adding two elements. You are simply saying a = a.

The null set possesses no properties. Therefore it cannot be a subset of every set.
That's a big ol' leap you took there between those two statements. Care to explain further?
"All the females in this room are nude" when there are no females is not a true statement.
How does this relate to null sets? If your original set is the set of females in the room, the null set would be something like the empty space in the room.
If this is what you really think, you may need to go back to high school algebra before you start arguing about set theory. Otherwise, you are one very committed troll indeed.

Something that does not exist and indeed is defined as having no properties can not be an element of anything at all.

It relates to null sets because of the idea that "having no properties" allows it to be a subset of every set. For this reason, it is said that all members of the empty set possess any and indeed all properties. And thus, if P --> Q and P is untrue, Q is always true. This is a nonsensical statement and it is only allowed due to the idea that the null set is a property of every set.

Also adhoms will not help you here. Go ahead and define how 0 is an element without just declaring it :) I say 0 has no elements.

Something that does not exist and indeed is defined as having no properties can not be an element of anything at all.
Empty sets do exist, just like empty rooms do, as in your example above. Also it's not really true that null sets have no properties: they have the property of being subsets of every set ;)
it is said that all members of the empty set possess any and indeed all properties.
It is said by whom? Null sets have no "members" so I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.
P --> Q and P is untrue, Q is always true.
You've got this wrong. If $P$ is false then the entire implication $P \implies Q$ is false, not $Q$ itself. There's nothing nonsensical about that.
Go ahead and define how 0 is an element without just declaring it
Again, 0 and the null set are not the same thing, and $\{0\} \neq \emptyset$.

You argue with the intelligence of a child.

Empty sets do not exist, they are the absence of existence. :thinking:

It is said by whom?

Educate yourself :)

You've got this wrong. If P is false then the entire implication P⟹Q is false, not Q itself

Okay this is the last (You) you'll get out of me, then I'll just let the record stand.
Empty sets do not exist, they are the absence of existence.
The empty set does exist. The elements of the empty set do not exist. There is a difference. Pretend the set is a box. All the elements of the set are the things in the box. If the box is empty, does that mean the box doesn't exist, or the things inside it don't exist?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuous_truth
Maybe you should take another look at that link because nowhere in it does it say "all members of the empty set possess any and indeed all properties." Statements *about* empty sets having any property are true. There is a difference. Implication statements like $P \implies Q$ are true or false, but that doesn't tell you necessarily whether the component statements $P$ and $Q$ are true. I'm not sure why you're so focused on vacuous truths anyway. They have nothing to do with whether every set contains the null set.
Incorrect, as per the above link.
You said a + 0 = a, not a + O.
Again, I have no idea what you're trying to say here.

Hope this helps!

0.333 is the decimal APPROXIMATION of 1/3.
but 0.333... is exact

post number settles it

When you're wrong and you want to run away!

The empty set does not exist, there is no box when you are talking about nothing at all.

"Pretend the set is a box"
nice job begging the question

Statements *about* empty sets having any property are true.

This is what I meant. This idea is nonsensical.

The entire idea that it is only false when P is true and Q false is a result of the idea that the null set is a subset of every set. Again, you have not explained how this is the case. You are claiming that "nothing" is apart of something, when to "be apart" means that it must exist. You are using circular logic.

Again, I have no idea what you're trying to say here.

That's fine, I'll take it as admission that you figured out you were wrong. And thus you ran away.

0.333.. is not exact idiot. Exact numbers (and all numbers) terminate. 0.333 does not terminate so it is not an exact number (or a number at all).

Infinities don't exist.

A is a set of all prime numbers which square of is a rational number.

I just defined an empty set. It exists just like any other set. The only difference is it has no elements.

"0.999..." is not a discrete number, it is an idea, that can only accurately be described by a function. That function has a limit of 1. And mathematics is nothing more than asymmetrical tautology. You don't take issue with:

1 + 1 = 2

it was a joke, dumbass

I guess nobody here studies maths...

Simple argument for all:

10*0.999... = 9.99...
9.99... - 0.999... = 9
9/9 = 1

This is what we just did:
(10*x - x)/9 = 1
Solve for x and you get 1. The equation above is of degree 1 so has at most 1 solution (in any field).

Now for the real reason 0.999... = 1:
The real numbers are just the completion of the rational numbers; 0.999... is a cauchy sequence 9/10 + 9/100 + 9/1000 + ... and hence converges to a unique number in the reals. In this case 1.

so convincing
it was a joke, dumbass

tl;dr
$1 = \dfrac{3}{3} = 3 \cdot \dfrac{1}{3} = 3 \cdot 0.\bar{3} = 0.\bar{9}$

Well, it's true that infinity isn't really a defined value.

0.0... (with an infinite number of zeroes) 1 is certainly not the same as 0.0... (with an infinite number of zeroes and nothing more.)

Indeed, it's an infinitely small value, but
0.0...1 is not equivalent to 0.0...

This devolves into the "∞+1 =/= ∞" argument, though. I think the difference between this issue and the ∞+1 is simply that 0.0...1 has a defined difference, and we can kindof pinpoint it after an "infinite number" of zeroes.

The arguments for both sides tend to differ based on personal interpretation of an infinite repetition. It's an inherent issue with base 10, as I noted in .

Should we switch to duodecimal,
1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1 without dispute, as:
12/3 = 4 (base10)
1/3 = 0.4 (base12)
0.4 + 0.4 + 0.4 = 1. No infinite repetition, no problems.

who are you quoting, moron

There is no personal interpretation in maths...

Saying 0.0... with an infinite number of zeros then a 1 makes absolutely no sense. Neither in maths, nor with respect to any other reasoning.

0.0... (with an infinite number of zeroes) 1 is certainly not the same as 0.0...
yes it is, that's infinity doing its thing

There is no personal interpretation in maths
Yes there is, certainly on the cusp of new mathematics

Yes, 3/3 ≠ 1

Do you have a reference to back that up? Or are you just referring to the axiom of choice?

what's a real like axiom

In the hyperreals it could be $\epsilon$, the smallest number that's greater than 0.

So no one here is able to refute me? Pathetic. This is what math amounts to when you just let any retard in. I'm getting my PhD this year at a renowned university and I know 0.999 != 1. Yet you retards will believe anything you see on the internet.

Infinity is a construction, it has no use other than in approximations.
0.333.. != 1/3, the decimal number 1/3 does not exist. Base 10 doesn't allow it.

0.999... also does not exist. Limit does not mean equal, convergence does not mean equal. But go on believing whatever Veeky Forums tells you and dont listen to a PhD.

I very much doubt you are getting a PhD in mathematics... Do you even know what the real numbers are? It doesn’t seem like it

I am. And I do. I very much wonder how many people here on Veeky Forums actually study mathematics if this is the extend of their knowledge. They are not able to think for themselves it seems.

Then you should know that the real numbers are literally just convergent sequences of rational numbers, hence convergence IS equality. How would you justify the existence of pi or e otherwise?

Refute this if you can:

How would you justify the existence of pi or e otherwise?

Pi is just another point on the number line. The decimal approximation of Pi being infinite is a flaw of our number system.

Decimal Representations != The actual number (in all cases).

Refute this if you can:

9.999... - 0.999... us not a valid operation. You're trying to do arithmetic with infinities.

I also already told you convergence does not mean equal. It means close to. Just like asymptotes aren't ever reached....

But why do I try? Veeky Forums is for brainlets

Meant to say (in some* cases)

Pi is just another point on the number line

??? Ahahah ok now I KNOW you're not getting a PhD in maths...

Define 'infinities'? Never heard the term. Of course it is a valid operation, by your logic pi + pi makes no sense?

I also already told you convergence does not mean equal

And I already told you that you do not know what the real numbers are clearly. Just look up the definition for christs sake...

Took awhile Zozo and Zozo is right,
Squares of 0.999... yield 0.000...1

what are you even trying to say here?

So no one here is able to refute me? Pathetic.
the decimal number 1/3 does not exist.

and I know 0.999 != 1.

what's the definition of '>'

Essential attribute of the real numbers is, that for every two numbers of R that are not equal, there is one in between. However there is no number between 0.999.. and 1.

This idiot doesn't know what real numbers are. This thread should just die.

Then show me a proof that refutes my statement.
For every two elements x, y with x < y of R there is one x' in R so that x < x' < y.

Just another Veeky Forumstard spouting out whatever he is spoonfed to believe

pi+pi makes sense.
the decimal approximation + the decimal approximation does not make sense unless you terminate the term at some point.

Rather than actually showing math skills, you show your ignorance.

its true, 0.333... does not exist, numbers terminate. 1/3 is different than 0.333...

?

Ok you're just a troll.

Nothing you've said so far has any mathematical backing, you're just stating things which simply are not true without even attempting to explain them. You know nothing of basic foundations of mathematics, so I can deduce that you're probably some computer science student who knows some basic linear algebra and thinks he's a mathematician all of a sudden

I agree. I was talking about OP. Not you.

0.333... is an approximation of 1/3. 10 cannot be divided into 3 exactly, which is you get 0.333... The each 3 is another additional one being divided by 3.

The true redpill is that base 12 is superior.

If the 'decimal approximation' you keep referring to terminates, then the number is just a rational number. However, we are talking about the real numbers. The real numbers are the completion of the rational numbers. This means that every element in the reals IS a cauchy sequence! This is just the definition! It is really basic dude...

For example, the sequence (3, 3.1, 3.14, 3.141,...) is cauchy and we call it pi for short. If you write 0.999... it refers to the cauchy sequence (0.9, 0.99, 0.999,...). This sequence is equivalent to the sequence (1,1,1,...) because they converge!

Now we can define addition on these sequences in the obvious way: pi + pi = (3 + 3, 3.1 + 3.1, 3.14 + 3.14,...). And also 10 * 0.999... = (10*0.9, 10*0.99, + 10*0.999,...) = (9, 9.9, 9.99, 9.999,...).

Right, I'm the troll. Not the guy who just states the same things again and again without refuting anything.

Ok wise guy, go ahead and explain how to add every single infinite digit of the decimal representation in pi into a solid non terminating number. O.O what is that? You can't? It just goes on?? Why is this!? Could it be that, maybe, just maybe, the decimal approximation is just... that? A decimal approximation? That pi cant be accurately represented in its entirety using our written system!?

Dumb troll. You're still walking around talking as if infinity is a real thing without having ever proved it. "Yea guys really, I really did add every single term in this infinite sequence! I did! I didn't just get close to the answer, I got to the answer!!"

^You

Nice sleight of hand. Convergence does not make them equivalent. If you wanted to "plot" 0.999, it would have an asymptote at 1.

No, if you wanted to plot 0.9, 0.99, 0.999, 0.9999, ..... and so on it would have an asymptote at 1. 0.9999.... is infinite, it never terminates so it is 1 you fucking fool.

Convergence does make them equivalent, that is how the real numbers are defined. It's like talking to plank of wood.

How would you define the real numbers? I am genuinely curious. It seems to me that you are essentially saying that the real numbers don't exist because you can't write most of them down.

Is it in Gender Studies?

Oh hey it's this guy again. He will just keep bitching about how you can't complete an infinite amount of operations and therefore infinity makes no sense all the while ignoring that he's switching between different instances of the concept infinity at will when it suits him and also ignoring the actual mathematical definitions in favor of his intuition. Shockingly, this leads to contradictions and because his one view of infinity is clearly broken, all views/definitions of infinity must also be broken.

but also I have a phd in math

There is no addition going on here. It is a single element.
0.999... is constructed by the infinite sum of 9/(10^n) so not only is there addition involved, there are an infinite number of terms.

the formal proof from wikipedia 0.999... is all you need
nobody ever touches that one because they can't

0.333... is not equal to 1/3

If there exists a value to bridge the gap between 0.999... and 1 thus allowing 0.999... = 1, there also exists a value to bridge the gap between real numbers and infinity, thus allowing infinity to be equal to a real number.
If there exists no value to bridge the gap between 0.999... and 1 thus assuming 0.999... = 1, there also exists no value to bridge the gap between real numbers and infinity, thus assuming infinity to be equal to a real number.

Because the value does not actually exist and infinity cannot be reached, there is no possible value to add to 0.999... to make it reach 1; it will never reach 1. No amount of increments in the reals will reach infinity, so no mapped amount of increments between 0 and 1 will reach 1.

0.999... is not "infinitely close" to 1. It is actually infinitely far away from 1. Any arithmetic that shows 0.999... = 1 is therefore flawed by making inconsistent and mistaken assumptions about the construction of a repeating decimal extended from a poor interpretation and implementation of infinity, because infinity has classically always been poorly interpreted and implemented.

$0.\bar{9} \neq 1$

How much bigger is 1/3 compared to 0.333...?

Not a relevant question. How much bigger is infinity compared to 10 or $10^{10000}$?
Its the same distance from both of them.
0.999... isn't imperically "closer" to 1 than 0.01 is.
You dont go around saying 0.01 = 1, do you?
Numbers do not have distance. They are numbers.

None of those finite elements map to 0.999... so your entire argument is irrelevant.

implying infinity isn't just -1/12.

Just read the wikipedia page on the real numbers; you clearly do not know what they are.

Your argument makes no sense. All you are doing is counting a subset of the real numbers between 0.9 and 1, and of course the map doesn't reach 1... The real numbers are uncountable, so there are infinitely many such maps. You have not presented an argument.

wrong, they are two different kinds of notation which correspond to the same real number.
limit does not mean equal
no you're correct, but limits do exist in a mathematical sense, without them we wouldn't have analysis.
dedekind complete fields like the real numbers imply that all rational cauchy sequences have real limits.
the cauchy sequence 0, 0.9, 0.99, 0.999, has a limit 0.999..., this is the definition of the number you call 0.999...
but 0.999.. also has limit 1, via the epsilon delta definition of a limit.
so this cauchy sequence has limit 0.999.. and 1.
the real numbers are also defined as equivalence classes of cauchy sequences, thus 0.999... = 1 by definition.

.999... is concrete, real, well defined, whatever you want to call it

x=0,999...

The set of all real numbers you believe you're properly referencing is actually being confused. The set of all real numbers is only arbitrarily large, vague, and undefined.

Furthermore, SetA is all real numbers, SetB is all even real numbers. Both sets start empty, and will be filled. Every elememt of the Sets is cardinally indexed.
We inject an element into each set until they are filled. Because infinity cannot be reached, there exists no number infinity/2 that would have been the utmost largest value in the set of evens. Instead, both the set of evens and set of alls grow at the same rate and are of equal size. If left to grow indefinitely, unmeasureably, they would both be equal in size yet infinite.

So subtracting the infinite set of evens from the infinite set of alls leaves the infinite set of odds.
