Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!The number before the decimal is not 0. .99999999... is just another way of writing 1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #52 20120628 23:24:11
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!0.99999... The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #53 20120628 23:25:27
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!That is not really true. Again, it is a 1. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #54 20120628 23:26:34
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!It can be either 0 or 1, based on the way it is written.

Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!That 0 has no real significance. Would you write 00023 for 23? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #56 20120629 01:00:49

Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!But, how does continuity apply here?

Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!Endless!... #62 20120630 22:49:13
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!Hmmmm. That post is pretty endless. But .99999999... still equals 1 In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #63 20120701 07:38:01
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!10.999... = (0.9... = 0.1...) Further on...(0.99... = 0.01...) Further on...(0.999...= 0.001...) Conclusion there will Always be a Difference!! #64 20120701 07:39:35
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!But that difference is 0. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #65 20120701 18:56:14
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!At which Point in time!?? Start (0.9... = 0.1...) Further on... (Endless!) #66 20120701 18:57:46
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!At infinity of course. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #68 20120701 19:08:43
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!It is already there. That is what the notation implies. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #69 20120701 19:36:56
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!How Can it Already be there?? if there is a Endless Difference of 0.1 From the Start Onwards! #70 20120701 20:02:22
Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!That is your opinion of course. It is not backed up by mathematicians or by any solid evidence. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #71 20120701 20:38:00

Re: Pi to a Million Decimal Places!This thread is about pi. Can you restrict the posts to that? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #73 20120702 15:25:16
