*NOTE*: You still haven't shown that 0.(9) ≠ 1 using valid arguments/proof.

Erm... that was Anthony's version of a valid proof. Just read the rest of the thread(s) and you'll understand.

But I can Assure you! is Infinitely possible!") is a fallacy. Your pattern holds for every number of a finite series only."

If my pattern only holds for every number of a finite series only ?

Can you Give me the ( Maximum Possible finite series for 0.9 ) onwards!

and  Can you Give me the ( Maximum Possible finite series for 0.1 ) onwards!

*note*.Since we are discussing the same thing on two threads "0.9999 (recurring)= 1" and " INFINITE 0.9<>1 PROOF" why not to lock one thread and continue on the other?

Good idea, please continue in other thread.
