Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Altough is not a number and it is impossible to count to infinity, 0.9(1 second) 0.99(2 seconds) 0.999(3 seconds) seconds)#152 20061207 05:14:42
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Anthony, take a look at this: Bang postponed. Not big enough. Reboot. #153 20061207 06:43:59
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Actually, it's not so much of the concept of infinity that is incorrect. Anthony continues to state that 0.999... somehow grows. How real numbers grow, well, you got me.

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?
Even that ain't always true. But it is for the reals. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #156 20061210 01:53:44
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?So there we have it! A simple counter Proof to any Proof put forward so far,that says Infintite 0.9 = 1 #157 20061210 03:20:38
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?So I guess that the official notation for this would be Linux FTW #158 20061210 04:27:14
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?
That is not a counter proof, that is just being stubborn. #159 20061211 01:26:42

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?you really aernt getting this are you anthony, this really is like talking to a brick wall? The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #162 20061211 05:17:12
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Maybe we should try this step by step. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #163 20061212 00:53:00

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Well, now its obvious that Anthony is just trolling. Asking the same questions over an over again, not listening to answers, and never even attempting to answer our questions. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #166 20061212 01:24:44
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?To Ricky! #167 20061212 02:50:55
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Does that mean you refuse to answer any questions I ask on the topic? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #168 20061212 04:06:59
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Anthony you are beyond reach man. Ricky is trying to explain why your answer can't be answered(because it simply doesn't make sense) by asking you a question in return. #169 20061212 06:14:15#170 20061213 00:36:14

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?
What happens when you multiply both sides by 3? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #172 20061213 04:43:29
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?
What kinda of logic are you applying here? I could understand you, if we were saying that 0.99... = 0.9 but we're not #173 20061213 18:46:27
