Is this trueK well the only way i can figure out this problem is that even though the 9's would go on for an infinity you must take in consideration that if it ever stopped that when multiplyin by 10 you are moving the decimal backwards, therefore takin away 1 of the nines in the sum. The sum ends up workin out as long as you take into consideration that there must be an end. #3 20060226 17:01:09
