So I was looking at this post here: /If+Only+I+Had+Known+Then/funny-pictures/5111824/ which explained how Wolframalpha can do your math for you. So I tested out a common conundrum that's always had people arguing:
1/3 = 1 * 0.333 recurring = 0.333 recurring
2/3 = 2 * 0.333 recurring = 0.666 recurring
3/3 = 3 * 0.333 recurring = 0.999 recurring
therefore:
3/3 =/= 1

Wolframalpha confirms that 3/3 does indeed equal 0.999 recurring, not 1 like we've all been told to believe.

Also posting as anon because I don't have an account and couldn't care less about imaginary internet fame.
