Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?
First off "A + B = Would Equal 1.1" is blatantly false. A + B = 1. ...001, by your notation. #1078 20121124 12:21:43
Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Okay, I don't even know where to begin arguing with this...
So I know more specifically about what your talking about, I'd like to see your response to...
Stefy, supposing what you say is true, then what is the point of this argument in the first place? Why are there hyper real numbers even? You completely invalidate ... everything this controversy has to do with.
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.

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Yes, well I have a lot of experience with this too. It is probably my most argued thing to do with math, maybe the most argued thing in math in general. I actually haven't argued it that heavily on this forum, but I have argued this with people so much and amazingly am not tired of it yet. I want to argue this further because I feel that 0.¯9 ≠ 1, however, proving this is the issue. You can argue anything, but there is always a counter argument. Any proof of it can be argued from a different angle. The same can arguably be said true for those who argue against the idea that 0.¯9 = 1. Though I'm sorry, I can never ... personally accept any number equaling a different number, as it defies its very definition. Though as I said earlier, I will not continue to argue it either, as for that reason, it is futile to go forward. However, I do not mind following it either, as maybe sometime, they might eventually change this in mathematics finally (one can always hope...).

Re: 0.9999....(recurring) = 1?Oh, I think I might see, because 0.¯9 never ends, but 1 ends, is that correct? Life isn’t a simple Math: there are always other variables. [unknown] But Nature flies from the infinite, for the infinite is unending or imperfect, and Nature ever seeks an end. Aristotle
