*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.

"I agree with your first three statements. All of those numbers do add together to get 1. Your fourth statement however ("The Above is Only a Small sample from the Start Onwards! 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?
