9X = 8.991

.999 x 10 = 9.99
9.99 - .999 = 8.991
Your argument is invalid

It doesn't matter, whenever you multiply something by 10, you essentially move the decimal point forward one, therefore having, in simple terms, one less number on the right and one more number on the left.

yes but there will never be a 1 to the whatevereth place in antiquity in that number so it will NEVER equate to 10

Also, its 9.999-0.999 which equals 9.

You can't just bring extra decimal places out of nowhere.
x = 0.999
10x = 9.99 (Type in 0.999 x 10 into your calculator in case you're confused.)
10x - x = 9.99 - 0.999
9x = 8.991
x = 0.999

Same logic with four or more decimal places

x = 0.9999
10x = 9.999
10x - x = 9.999 - 0.9999
9x = 8.9991
x = 0.9999

Again type into calculator if you're confused.

the ... after 0.999 (like so: 0.999...) indicate that there are infinite nines

This is the logic behind this situation.
X = 0.9999...
10X = 9.999...
10X - X equates to 9.999... - 0.999...
Since we're working with subtraction, we must make sure we align the decimal points.
Ergo:
9.999...
-0.999...
________
9.000...

We've essentially removed the repeating decimal to get nine.
Now back to the algebraic expression 10X - X.
We've already deduced that this equals 9.
This expression simplifies down to 9X (10 plus negative one is nine.)
So one would assume that 9X = 10X - X which, as we saw, was equal to 9.
Following this, we have the expression 9X = 9.
Standard algebra tells us to isolate the variable X.
We do this by dividing both sides by 9, giving 9X/9 = 9/9
This simplifies to X = 1.

Now for the explanation at the heart of this seemingly confusing problem. The error lies in the fact that the decimal repeats indefinitely. The reciprocal of X is a 1 followed by an infinitely small decimal point. The fact is that simple algebra cannot handle this equation. This falls under the field of calculus.

Essentially.

Guys, this troll logic is actually true.

0.9 recurring is equal to one.

Here's another way to prove it:

1/9=0.1111...

Multiply both sides by 9

9/9=0.99999...

Hence: 1=0.99999...

There are a ton of other proofs, just google it.

I don't divide at all, that proof your teacher did was for proving that 1=2, an erroneous statement that relies on fallacy (dividing by zero).

This statement of 0.999...=1 is true and there are about one hundred ways to prove it beyond doubt.
