This is a boring thread. We have it daily and it always unequivocally devolves into wildburger posting. Stop it.

An engineer wrote that. 0.999999999999999999 meters = 1 meter in real life and anyone who says otherwise is just trying too hard to be correct and/or funny.

Pure math wise, this guy has the right idea.

0.999... = 0.999...

10(0.999...) = 10(0.999...)

10(0.999...) = 9.999...

10(0.999...) = 9 + 0.999...

9(0.999...) = 9

0.999... = 1

What the fuck is this shit. Why would I want "cults", "infanticide", "preemptive penal organ harvesting", or "Sacred whores".

How is Matt. VII. xix "omnis arbor quae non facit fructum bonum exciditur et in ignem mittitur" relevant?

Don't bother, people arguing about this topic don't even know what a real number is.

It's it's true, then you should be able to prove 0.999 = 1 in base 2 or in base 6 number systems. I suspect any proof wouldn't work in any number system other than base10.

sure thing

[eqn]0.\overline{1}_2=\sum_{1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{2^N}=\frac{1}{2}*\sum_{0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{2^N}=\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{1-\frac{1}{2}}=1\\

0.\overline{5}_6=\sum_{1}^{\infty}\frac{5}{6^N}=\frac{5}{6}*\sum_{0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{6^N}=\frac{\frac{5}{6}}{1-\frac{1}{6}}=1[/eqn]

and generally

[eqn]x\in\mathbb{N}\backslash\{0\}\\

0.\overline{(x-1)}_x

=\sum_{1}^{N}\frac{(x-1)}{x}

=\frac{(x-1)}{x}\sum_{0}^{N}\frac{1}{x}

=\frac{\frac{(x-1)}{x}}{1-\frac{1}{x}}

=\frac{\frac{(x-1)}{x}}{\frac{x}{x}-\frac{1}{x}}

=\frac{\frac{(x-1)}{x}}{\frac{x-1}{x}}

=1[/eqn]

it's always bugged the fuck out of me that the image isn't logarithmically scaled

it just goes to show that math can be a fraud, and we all know that

magical "logic tricks" that are not true, yet, "the proofs!" are "given"

close enough for government work
