Quote " I should note though, I don't quite understand the start of the universe, end of the universe thing, mind explaining it?'

If ...999 was to equal 1 then the .9's would End? But as we Know Reach the End of the Universe ? & Find a Wall ? ...

Then There must be Something behind the Wall !! Example = .........999999999 [1]Wall] .........999999999

"I think what SMBoy is saying Maelwys is that if you add that to 0.9, or 0.99, or 0.999, regardless how many 9s there are, it will equal 1.  But if you add the same thing to 1, you will get 1.1, or 1.01, or 1.001, etc.  More showing how the 2 answers are different and not equal in that sense."

Another way of looking at & Solving the Problem is 0.999... = (The Start of the Universe) and 1 = (The End of the Universe ? )

A = ...999

B = ...001

A + B = 1

If A was to Equal 1 on it's own then... A + B = Would Equal 1.1

## #4 Re: This is Cool » 0.9999....(recurring) = 1? » 2012-11-22 04:26:52

.9 + .1 = 1
.99 + .01 = 1
.999 + .001 = 1
.9999 + .0001 = 1
.99999 + .00001 = 1

But the a Two differences remain constantly the same! just another 9 and 0 ...further down the line does not make them nearer to being equal to 1

## #5 Re: This is Cool » 0.9999....(recurring) = 1? » 2012-11-21 22:54:50

But approaching 0 and seems to be approaching Are both not Actually ever going to get there ?

## #6 Re: This is Cool » 0.9999....(recurring) = 1? » 2012-11-21 22:35:05

But if 1/3 = 0.333... Then Why does 0.333... Not become = to 0.4 Because that would then be the Same Infinite Calculation as...

0.999... becoming = to 1

I am surprised so many People are still using BASIC, then again it's much more easy to understand compared to other Programming languages.
