This almost destroyed the very core of my beliefs, in turn destroying my entire personality. I managed to save it though through some thought and ultimately common sense. Let me explain. With every 9 added after the decimal, you are decreasing the error by a factor of 10. Now, as long as you add a finite amount of 9's this means that its just plain wrong, 1 simply cannot equal a number less than 1. However, you can make .9999+ become 1, but only by adding exactly an infinite number of 9's. By doing so you decrease the error by by an infinite amount, leaving the error at 0%.

This is basic stuff guys, how did you not know bout it? Did none of you do GCSE Mathematics?

No what's pathetic is that you don't leave people to enjoy watching whatever the hell they want to watch but rather insult them for it. It's all personal preference so there's no right or wrong no matter which way you put it.   
   
God some haters are pathetic. And no I'm not a brony I'm neutral.

I think he was the one saying I can't use a Katy Perry picture. Maybe I like her and wanted to show that or something? He doesn't know what my intention was and still he 'hated'.

Ah alright ^^ I finished maths in highschool, never had a look at it after that again :P sorry xD

Basic algebra. Totally wrong.

If you want to prove 0.9 repeating is one you use fractions.
1/9 = 0.1 repeating
2/9 = 0.2 repeating
3/9 = 0.3 repeating
...
therefore, 9/9 = 0.9 repeating, but 9/9 = 1.
So 9/9 = 0.9 repeating = 1

10x = 0.9repeating would be rewritten as 10 = (0.9repeating)/x

Wolfram alpha agree!

Before i leave
The problem is that 10* 9.999, as infinite the 9's may be.
will not be 9,999-

God damnit why do i keep forgetting to add a pic
I think thats my queue for bedtime
User avatar #21 to #19 - ossamabinladen (06/16/2012) [-]
it will be 9.999-
all you do is move the decimal place one spot to the right

Spose suicide is still an option

I don't see how it'd be my fault as my teachers never taught me this **** ..? How does that make ME retarded? I'm actually quite smart.. Clearly not well educated, but that's the failure of the system.

It's .999 repeating. That is what the dash is on top. This means that there is an infinite amount of 9's after what is shown.

Goddamn dutch education system. Never thaught me this **** ...
