GiB. No Idea what the above is about!?

Anyway...OK! ( ROOT = 1 ) As an Example...( ROOT = 100 ) As an Example...Now do you Get it! Anything that you think is the ROOT! is The ROOT! in this case We want to know what you think ( Infinite-Recurring 0.9 ) Is as the ROOT!

And Then Give...All Three you Now Have the Root? (or Maybe Not??)

Infinite-Recurring 0.9 Negative = ?

Infinite-Recurring 0.9 Root = ?

Infinite-Recurring 0.9 Positive = ?

A Better way of Looking at the above is IR0.9N( ? ) IR0.9R( ? ) IR0.9P( ? )

The Above is just Variables in case you Want to make a Formula!

]]>( THE ROOT IS WHAT YOU THINK! Infinite-Recurring 0.9 Is )

I just Gave this to a Goldfish! and it gave a Better Answer than what I have seen So Far!

GiB.

I think, and one of the definitions you provided stated, that ROOT is simply an informal way of shouting "square root of." Thus, ROOT 100 = √(100) = 10.

If you are using ROOT in a different manner, please provide a *rigorous* definition. If you don't explain your non-standard terminology to your audience, then, however genius your claim may be, it is indistinguishable from gibberish.

]]>so, the root is what i think infinite recurring 0.9 is?

i think infinite recurring 0.9 = 1, so the root is 1?

what does that have to do with anything?

and why do you have to use random terminology that has nothing to do with your argument?

here is what you have done:

1) conjecture that 0.999... is NOT 1 despite there being lots of proofs that it IS 1

2) give an extremely vague description of your argument

3) when asked to elaborate on your argument, you just repeat yourself and insult them

so what you have actually done is annoyed some people and done nothing good to get your point across.

can you also explain what you find wrong with my proof?

let x = 0.999...

10x = 9.999...

9x = 9

therefore x = 1 = 0.999...

Please refrain from saying comments like that. Try to argue intelligently. Just because people disagree with you that is no reason to insult them.

]]>comment removed - insulting, flaming.

]]>This is Incredible!!

( THE ROOT IS WHAT YOU THINK! Infinite-Recurring 0.9 Is )

The Same as ( THE ROOT For 100 is 100 )

GiB.

How is it incredible? Do you find it strange that, upon introducing new mathematical terminology to mathematicians, that those mathematicians expect that terminology to be rigorously defined before using it?

]]>It is not going to pay to press him any further on "what he has got." As you both know there is nothing to have here.

In the interest of presenting good math I am forced to say that argument is fruitless. There are many proofs that prove him wrong. If he will not look then he cannot see.

]]>by root you mean...the origin? ok, what does this have to do with the original problem?

you are telling us something about 0.999... and something about understanding the root but you are being very vague still

]]>Just For ALL_Is_Number

100 Root = 100 ( THE ROOT IS THE START! THE ORIGIN! ) (The Root) is Not The Square Root) And Just In case Anyone Thinks It's Teeth? Etc.

GiB.

That isn't a definition.
